The Friends of Bishop Gilpin is the name for our Parent-Teacher Association.
FOBG is a registered charity and is led by parents at the school. Its main objective is to organise fund-raising events to finance facilities and equipment that cannot be funded by the main school budget. However we also provide links between the school and parents and organise social activities that bring members of the school community together.
Every current BG parent and all the Staff are automatically members of the Friends. The FOBG is run by an elected Committee that meets every half term and we encourage parents to come along to these meetings as and when they can.
FOBG is a lively and active organisation and we put on social events for both children and parents throughout the year. We also organise smaller treats and events for the children, as well as providing refreshments at school events, running Second Hand Uniform Sales etc.
You don't have to join the Committee to be part of the FOBG team. Any way in which you can help will make a difference to our school.
2017-2018 Fundraising Total. We are hoping to raise another £35K in this academic year. These funds will continue to go to Bishop Gilpin's new entrance project: parent shelters, seating, bike shelters.
We can’t put on these amazing events without your help. If you can help us, we still need the following volunteers:
Magic Shows (Friday 06 December)
All parents, governors and staff are automatically members of The Friends of Bishop Gilpin (FOBG). FOBG fundraises to buy things that the school budget cannot afford.
The Committee meets twice a term to decide on fundraising activities and also on how to spend the money raised. All parents are welcome to come along to meetings.
