Friends of Cargilfield

Parents are part of the school

The Friends of Cargilfield (FOC) is a group of parents who meet regularly to plan fund raising and social events.

FOC members usually stay on board for three years so that there is continuity within the group.

The FOC is comprised of members who are class reps for their year groups as well as school shop organisers, a treasurer, secretary and chair. Please go to the iSAMS Parent App for contact details of class reps.

Purposes of the Friends of Cargilfield

FOC have an 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 organise 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. They will also keep their year groups up to date with discussions that take place at the regular FOC meetings.

FOC consider a major part of their role to promote Cargilfield as an independent school that is happy and successful.

FOC organise several fund raising events throughout the year which raise money for the chosen charities for that year as well as the school and the annual Macmillan Cancer Support Coffee morning. The fundraising activities range from cake sales and quiz nights to the Christmas, Summer Fairs and School Balls. They also run the 2nd Hand Uniform Shop.

Monies raised from these events and the shop are donated to the schools nominated charities and to the school. These charities are chosen annually.
