Friends of BCPS

Our Core Mission

The Friends of BCPS (FOBS) is an inclusive voluntary group, made up of parents and teachers who work together to organise a variety of fundraising events for our School. The mission of The Friends of BCPS is to provide the opportunity to raise money to help fund the 'extras' that the school would not otherwise be able to provide.


We hold our Annual General Meeting each October. Our general meetings are held each term,  items discussed can include - upcoming events, reports from the chair and Treasurer, volunteer requirements. All meetings are hybrid either in person at the school or via Zoom.

Dates are available on the school calendar, and we also publish upcoming meetings on our Facebook page and via Tapestry. Meeting are typically held in January, April and July.


Our events are communicated on our Facebook page – Please do check out our Facebook page. Friends of BCPS as we do regularly post out content.

We also send out communication via Tapestry, and additionally by placing posters near to the school gates.
