Friends at Colne Engaine School (FACES)
FACES – (Friends at Colne Engaine School) is our amazing group of volunteer parents and carers that hold lots of creative fundraising events to raise much needed funds for the school. On this page you will find information about future events and projects.
We are currently working hard to come up with some imaginative fundraising ideas that work with in the restrictions that Covid 19 brings. Watch this space!
The F.A.C.E.S team are always looking for new helpers and committee members, whether you can help by doing the supermarket run for film night sausages or can spare some time to help plan and run events, every little bit is appreciated.

Schools wish list
At our meetings we always ask Mrs Sarti for a wish list of items FACES and your generous donations can help buy for the school.
With current restrictions the children have really missed their singing and music lessons so one item on the list was some new musical instruments. With this in mind your money will help buy 15 glockenspiels to get some music back into the classrooms.
Each classroom has been given a pot of money for some new play equipment and craft materials and the bark in the play area has been re-filled.
Another on-going cost is the upkeep and replacement of IT equipment and software, so 5 more laptops will be bought to be used across the school and some new learning support software will be installed.
Covid 19 additional costs
I hope you will agree that our wonderful school has been amazing in putting measures in place to keep our children safe and protected from the current pandemic, however the school has received no additional funding towards the cost of these measures!
Some of the extra things include, but are not limited to
wipes for cleaning down surfaces
extra paper towels
additional toilet cleaning
class bubble packs
individual student packs
As you can imagine these costs soon add up, and with an ever-shrinking budget any extra donations we can make towards these costs really helps.
We will be setting up a just giving page in the coming weeks to raise some money to help cover these additional costs. More information coming soon!
