Welcome to Friends of Dulwich Wood

Friends exists to promote positive relationships between staff, parents and the school community. Its primary aim is to support the school by raising money for additional facilities that cannot be paid for from government funding.

Recent examples of projects funded or partially funded by Friends are:

·         A whole school trip to the Globe theatre

·         Times tables stair (on order)

·         New playground equipment

·         Development of the hard playground into a greener area.

·         The Garden Project (more detail below)

·         Christmas books for every child.

·         School pets

Every Dulwich Wood parent/carer is automatically enrolled as a member of Friends – and everyone is welcome. Please ensure that you sign up with a contact email address if you have not already done so. Contact us at friendsofdwp@gmail.com.

We run many events throughout the year such as a Spooky Halloween Disco, Winter Wonderland, Quiz night and a Summer fair to name a few. We also ran a weekly Fruity Friday which was greatly loved by the children. Due to the Covid crisis many of these activities were understandably delayed or cancelled. Whilst we plan to hold some of these events in the new school year, they are likely to be on a much-reduced scale and consequently reduce our funding raising opportunities.

In order to continue to support the school in these difficult times we have had interest from some members to donate a single or monthly amount. If this is something you would like to do please consider setting up a standing order to the account below.

Second-hand Uniform

Due to the success of our second-hand uniform sale we are going to make this a regular event. The school office will take all donations including good quality outdoor coats and school shoes. We are really grateful for donations but please only donate if the condition is still at a level you would send your child to school in. It would also be really helpful if your child’s name could be crossed out with a marker pen, and clothes were donated washed.

We also need volunteers to help sell the uniform at the school gates. Please complete the below doodle if this is something you can help with. Unfortunately, volunteers will not be able to bring small children with them at this time.

The Garden Project

One of our parents Venture has redesigned the garden area at the back of the school. We have gardening sessions at the weekends and ask for volunteers to help keep the flowers watered. So far, half the beds have been planted, the mini orchard is in place and the climbers have been planted. The doodle for watering is emailed out at the beginning of term we also have a WhatsApp group for regulars, please email in your number if you would like to be added. Many families have been able to enjoy the extra space and enjoy watering the children! Contact the Friends for more information.
