Friends of High Firs (FHF)
All parents are automatically members of the Friends of High Firs School Association but the Association is open to anyone with an interest in the school. The Association is run by a committee, elected at the Annual General Meeting. The committee arrange many social and fund raising events for the children and their interest and support is a valued part of the school organisation – all their hard work on behalf of the children is very much appreciated. The money raised from their fundraising activities has gone towards providing many extra items for the children, as well as funding major projects around the school. All help and support is much appreciated! Why not come to a meeting or volunteer at an event?
