I am married and a mother of two girls, my youngest daughter attends Goat Lees Primary School and is in year 4, my eldest daughter attends Kent University. I work part time as a project manager for Edify Training consultancy. I am also doing a Level 1 Sign Language Course. My aim is for the Friends to raise funds for the benefit of the children whilst boosting the profile of the school within the local community.
Hello I am a 44 year old married mother of six! I am a stay at home mum now but previously was a mental health support worker in an acquired brain injury unit. I love most forms of crafting especially baking, paper craft, jewellery making and sculpture. My happy place is sitting in my craft room with 3 or 4 projects on the go. I have pet rats and African pygmy dormice.
I am Mum to two boys, Noah currently in year 2 at Goat Lees and Zachary who will be starting school next September. Myself and my husband run a business which allows me to be flexible with my time, and this is why I decided to join the Friends and help raise money for the school by helping to organise fun and exciting events for the children & their families. I love being involved with the school in this way & love seeing how excited the children get at the events, from the annual summer fair to the discos. The events raise money for various school resources, subsidise school trips as well as pay towards vital equipment such as the school minibus so it is an important group. We have lots of fun ourselves while organising and I have made a fantastic group of friends at the same time!
The children enjoyed the end of year disco and as you can see, they really let their hair down!
We held a very successful summer fair - even the rain stayed away! Thank you to everyone who helped to organise the event and run a stall. Of course, a huge thank you to everyone who came and supported us.
We had a very successful Christmas Fair, Father Christmas came to see us and there was a lot of fun and games! Thank you to everyone who supported us.
We held a Monster Ball - it was a very scary evening! Thank you to everyone who helped us to have a fantastic time.
