The school benefits greatly from an enthusiastic and supportive Friends of William Gilpin School.
Every new parent joining the school is automatically a member of the Association. The committee organises a series of social and fundraising events.
The Association is not just to raise funds for the children but also to help forge a good relationship between the school and its families. To support this philosophy each class has its own FROWGS representative.
The funds raised by the Association help to provide extras for the children, which are not always possible within the school budget. These range from play equipment for outside, books for the library, coaches for school trips and visiting theatre groups.
