Friends of Rutherford House
The Friends is the charitable fundraising arm of Rutherford House School - you may be more familiar with the term 'PTA' or 'Parent Teacher Association'. All families are automatically members of the Friends when their child joins the school.
The Friends was founded by a group of Rutherford House parents when the school opened in 2013 for three key purposes;
- To support the school and to promote friendship, through the organisation of social functions and other means, amongst parents/carers, staff and other people interested in the life of the school, as well as acting as a valuable source of information for current and prospective parents
- To raise funds for the school in order to meet the current and future school needs as it continues to grow
- To raise funds for chosen school charities
Our main focus for the 2016/17 academic year is to raise funds for an 'eco pod' classroom and extra iPads.
There is more information about the Friends in the guide booklet below and a full list of events can also be downloaded from the calendar.
