Friends of Didcot Girls' School/ Community News

Friends LogoFriends of Didcot Girls’ School are an independent group of parents, carers, staff and supporters from the local community wishing to offer appropriate support or help to the school. 

Charity registration number 1192666

 

We are pleased to announce that we are now a registered charity which is fantastic news and long overdue.

We have recently supported the school by providing a new golf buggy for our site team, a set of netball dresses for the PE department, guitar hooks for the Music department, a Weather Station for the Geography Department and a drill for the Drama and Art Departments.

We are only able to do this because of the continued fantastic support we get from you all.

EXCITING OPPORTUNITY

Friends of Didcot Girls' School is looking for a new person to take over as Chair, when I sadly step down at the end of June.

We are a well-established Charity that supports the school by fundraising for extra equipment and other support that is needed. I have really enjoyed my time as Chair, it has been very rewarding and has been lovely to be able to grant wishes to lots of departments.There won't be any student that has not benefitted in some way from FoDGS support. I have been aided by a marvellous committee and I know that will continue for the new Chair.

If you could spare the time to take on the exciting opportunity and support the students and school please email me at friends@didcotgirls.oxon.sch.uk. Friends of Didcot Girls' School Charity is only possible with the support of the school community, Parents, Carers, Staff, and supporters. Tracey Mock, Chair of Friends of DGS
