As you may have read in the press, school budgets have been progressively cut over the past few years. Bower Park has always managed its budget prudently and has prioritised recruiting and retaining teachers and maintaining our smaller class sizes where possible. However, this has led to a reduction in our budget and we have not been able to refurbish the South Hall.
To remedy this, we have negotiated a deal to replace all the curtains, lights and sound but will need your help to finance this. We need to raise around £25,000 in order to support our reduced budget and aim to do so before the summer holidays!
We are very aware that austere times mean that you too may be feeling the financial squeeze, but if you could support our fund-raising this will be of direct benefit to the current children at Bower Park Academy.
If you still have a child at the school, the best way to donate is through Tucasi, using the South Hall Upgrade option, as this will gain Gift Aid. Alternatively you can follow this JustGiving link :
Or you can hand in cash/cheques to school reception in an envelope marked South Hall Upgrade.
We seek a donation of £25 from each of our Facebook ‘friends’, but feel free to give more or less.
If there are former pupils or parents who can help but are not on this page, please share this appeal with them.
