The Friends of Cargilfield (FOC) is a group of parents who meet regularly to plan fund raising and social events.
FOC members usually stay on board for three years so that there is continuity within the group.
FOC members are also class reps for their year groups. Please go to the Parent Portal for contact details of class reps for 2017/18.
FOC have a very important role when it comes to looking after new parents and will contact or meet new parents of Cargilfield children before the child begins his or her life at the school.
The Form Representatives on the Friends of Cargilfield will host a coffee morning or drinks party for their year group at some stage during the year which is a popular way for parents to meet each other.
FOC organise several fund raising events throughout the year which range from a simple cake sale to the Christmas and Summer Fairs. In 2016/17 they raised £11,697.49 which was made up from: Macmillan coffee morning, Quiz Night, Christmas Fair, Bake Sale, Curry/Ceilidh, Summer Fair and the 2nd Hand Uniform Shop.
This was rounded up to £13,300 and was donated to St Columbus Hospice, Macmillan Cancer and some to school projects.
For 2017/18, the FOC have combined with the children to raise funds for three new charities: Who Cares Scotland, Canine Partners and the Scottish SPCA, all of which were chosen by the children and the FOC committee.
FOC consider a major part of their role to promote Cargilfield as an independent school that is happy and successful.
