Purposes of the Friends of Cargilfield:

FOC have a very important role when it comes to looking after new parents and will contact or meet new parents of Cargilfield children before the child begins his or her life at the school.

The Form Representatives on the Friends of Cargilfield will host a coffee morning or drinks party for their year group at some stage during the year which is a popular way for parents to meet each other.

FOC  organise several fund raising events throughout the year which range from a simple cake sale to the Christmas Fair. In 2014/15 over £6500 was raised for charity.

For 2015/16, the FOC have combined with the children to raise funds for three charities: Sick Kids’ Foundation, The Teapot Trust and The Yard, all of which were chosen by the children.  An update on charitable giving can be located here:
