The current committee meets at the school on a regular basis to organise events. Meetings are advertised at school or on this website.

What we are funding?

In previous years our fundraising has provided a full class set of 30 iPads for the children to use, along with the correct storage cases and a trolley to transport them around the school to different classrooms. Not only did we provide the ipads, but we also have provided some sturdy new benches for the outside space made of railway sleepers, with the money raised.

Last year we raised funds to help pay for state of the art 56 inch touch screens for each classroom. The teachers are absolutely LOVING using the screens to aid their teaching, and the children think they are cool, which is obviously going to help engage them with the lessons they will have using them! They are essentially like giant i-pads mounted on the wall. Pop in to your child's classroom to see them in action!

Thank you for al your support. None of this would be possible without you.
School uniform

As you know we are the providers of badged school uniform which we sell via the school web page. A small donation from each purchase goes to the Friends, to purchase extra equipment for the school.
What is the 200 club?

The ‘200 Club’ is a monthly prize draw. By setting up a standing order for as little as £1 each month you can help to provide a regular income that is put towards improving the facilities available to the children of Ton Yr Ywen. In addition you get the opportunity to win monthly cash prizes of £50, £25, £15 and £10. Twice a year there is a Star Prize Draw for £100.

Membership is open to parents, guardians, grandparents, relatives, teaching staff, in fact anybody with a connection to the school is welcome to join. Each £1 pays for a number in the monthly draw. So go on, don't delay. Click on the link below to download an application form.


Volunteer Database

The more people we have on this database, the better, as it means that the volunteer jobs don't always fall to the same few people. If you feel you could spare a little time to help at an event there are plenty of both small and larger jobs to do, so don't be shy in coming forward! Please contact us via the website/ Facebok Page/Whatsapp group/ email/ grab one of the Friends Comittee members if you see us around the school or leave a note in the office. Thank you!
