CCS Friends is the Caroline Chisholm School Friends Association. It exists to provide close links between home and school, bringing staff and parents together to provide social experiences and fund raising to help support the school with equipment to enrich the learning experiences for the students.
All parents and members of the local community are welcome to get involved, even if they only have a small amount of time. The committee meets each month, usually on a Monday evening at 7.30pm. Our Annual General Meeting (AGM) will take place on Monday 12 October. All meeting dates are published on our Facebook page, please click here to like or follow our page here to keep updated with us.

- Musical instruments for Primary and Secondary Phases
- Equipment for Primary Gardening Area
- Playground Equipment for Primary Phase

Charity Matching Scheme
Do you work for a company that has a Charity Matching Scheme?
If you think that your employer has a matched giving scheme already in operation, or if you would like some more information about charity matching, please contact CCS Friends at email@example.com and address to CCS Friends Chair, Sarah Bourne.
Some of the larger companies who have had excellent schemes in the past are Barclaycard, BT, Avon, and NatWest, who have matched the fundraising of their staff members. You may not have heard if your company operates such a scheme, but it may be worth contacting your Human Resources department to find out. We have been helped enormously in the past by this type of donation, and there are several benefits to both the company and ourselves.
It is just another simple way that you can help our school and children.
