The Friends


THE FRIENDS


All parents of students at Elizabeth College automatically become members of The Friends.

Split into two sections: The Friends of Elizabeth College; and The Friends of Elizabeth College Junior School, both groups have their own committee of parents and staff to manage the fundraising initiatives for their respective areas of the school.

Like all schools, Elizabeth College has a wish list of equipment and activities that fall outside the remit of the allocated budget. The Friends is run much like any other PTA (Parents Teachers Association) and the Committees, in conjunction with the College, decide how funds raised at the various events are spent.

The Friends would like to encourage all parents to take an active part in the Friends’ activities either by joining the Committee, offering to help when possible and, of course, by attending and enjoying their annual events.

HOW TO HELP


Please contact us if you would like to help out, however much (or little!) time or skills you have to share. Taking part is entirely voluntary and new faces are always welcome.

Elizabeth College is a participant in the Amazon EU Associates Programme. Please consider bookmarking this page to enable the Elizabeth College Foundation to benefits from commission paid by Amazon (at no extra cost to you) on all purchases made using the link below.

For Upper School parents one way you can support the College is by subscribing to the Friends’ Elizabeth College Sports Tours Fund Monthly Draw. This fund helps to support the cost of travelling College sports teams for off-island (UK or Jersey) fixtures whilst providing an opportunity for subscribers to win cash sums in a monthly lottery draw.

Three prizes are drawn each month and 30% of the total income from numbers purchased is distributed.
