‘Creating Opportunities’


FRIENDS of Cardinal Road

All parents are automatically members of the Friends Association, which organises and runs fund raising and social events for the benefit of the children and their families.


Everyone is welcome to attend meetings, and all offers of help are gratefully accepted. We are a diverse group of parents who enjoy working together to contribute to the well being and ethos of the school, so please come along and get involved! Recently money raised by FRIENDS has contributed to visiting theatre productions, school trips and class Christmas presents. We would also like to hear of any new ideas or suggestions for activities and events.

Friends usually meet every month in Riverside Room. There are always children's posters around school advertising the next meeting. Please come and offer your ideas; we would really love to see you!

During the week of December 11th FRIENDS organised a Santa's Grotto for each year group to visit. Donations of decorations were asked for and they worked really hard to transform Riverside Room into a Christmas wonderland! The event was very well attended and both children and parents enjoyed the opportunity to meet Santa at this special time of year. 



A very big thank you to the volunteers who recently came into school on a crisp November morning to help with painting, gardening and mending books in our school library.  The school environment is now looking colourful and ready for the winter months ahead.
