Decisions on spending money are made at the committee meetings, and fall broadly into three areas; Funding for a large project – for us it was ‘Project School Hall' in 2015, or requests from the school for particular items, and finally, treats for the children which is outlined in our Special Days section.
PROJECT SCHOOL HALL
Most of the funds raised from FOBG between 2014 - 2015 went towards revamping the school Hall PA and lighting system. We are passionate about music and drama at Bishop Gilpin. We have installed a £21,000 state-of-the-art lighting and PA system for the school hall to enhance all of the school plays, school concerts and other performances.
In 2015, FOBG also donated £10,000 to revamping the year 3 corridor and helped fund much needed new storage space.
