Friends of Rush Common
Friends of Rush Common (FORC) is the parent group that organises community building and fund-raising events for the school. It exists for the benefit of all Rush Common children with money raised going towards enhancing school life for each child. In the last few years, money raised has gone towards building an adventure playground and a wildlife area, purchasing furniture in the Year 1 and 2 area, as well as sound equipment for the hall. This past year we raised money to buy new furniture and books for the school library as well as books for all of the school’s book collections, an interactive screen for the hall and new Maths resources.
Each year the group organises two school discos for the children; a Christmas Bazaar and a Summer Fete along with socials just for parents and other events for the whole family.
It is a fun group to be a part of and a great way to meet other parents from the school and find out more about school life. If you would like to find out more about the Friends of Rush Common, contact the FoRC Chair, Kate Lowe or FoRC Vice Chair, Jenny Neal at: firstname.lastname@example.org.
Updates about our activities can be found on the fortnightly school newsletter and in the FORC newsletters.
