Howe Park School

The Howe Park Friends Association is a registered charity (no.1092037) that was established in October 2001. It is run by parents of children in the school. All parents automatically become members of the Friends’ Association when their child joins the school.


What do we do?

Our main aim is to organise fun, social events for children and their families, and to raise funds.

The events organised by Friends Association provide great opportunity for families to be active within school in a non-academic environment. The funds raised play a very important role in helping the school to maintain its excellent resources.


Events organised by Friends take place throughout the year and have included:

  • Christmas, Easter and Summer Fetes
  • Coffee Mornings
  • School Discos
  • Fund raising events such as Family Portrait Day, Christmas cards etc.

Through such events the Friends Association has raised thousands of pounds and these funds have contributed towards buying photographic equipment, re-surfacing the Rainbow playground, toys, subsidising school trips and many other items.


How can you help?

The success of the Friends depends entirely on the support of parents, families, staff and the community. We greatly appreciate any assistance. New faces and fresh ideas are very welcome at our regular meetings. The meetings are very informal and are a great way to meet other parents and a chance to get involved.

Volunteers are always needed to help at events, if you are interested please drop us an email or sign up with one of Friends member for future events.

Gift donations by you or your company are helpful for our Raffle prizes.
