Who We Are & What We Do
The Friends of Vyners is you; all parents and teachers are automatically members whilst they have children at the school or are employed by the school. There is an executive committee of about a dozen parents and teachers, officers including a chair, treasurer and secretary, with a few regular and some occasional helpers.
The Friends of Vyners role is to support the children in the school by way of raising additional funds for projects that are outside of the scope of existing funding. Since the creation of the Friends of Vyners in the 1960’s it has raised huge sums of money that have been spent for the benefit of all pupils in the school past and present.
In recent years, the Friends of Vyners have provided funds to roll out the Wi-Fi network in the school, make an annual substantial contribution to the running costs of the two school minibuses, funded artwork, frames and display cases around the school, supported the Seamus Foley Memorial Garden, provided much needed equipment for the Duke of Edinburgh's award scheme and also purchased playground furniture for the new Quad. And let's not forget all the Chrome Notebooks recently funded by the 3 Peaks Challenge in 2015 where we raised an amazing £26k donating £6k to Asthma UK!
