 Friends of Dene Magna is a group of parents and school staff raising funds for resources to benefit all students through fun events for all the community.

Recently re-formed with a new committee, the group are aiming to build up a range of fundraising events which will also bring all of the local community together. All funds raised will be spent on resources or activities to benefit all students at the school, which would otherwise not be possible from existing budgets.

Many thanks, in advance, for all your support and we look forward to seeing you at our events over the coming months.

A huge thank you to Miss Williams for doing such a fantastic job as Bingo Caller, to the rest of the FDMA Team for all of their hard work and last, to Lynne Adams and her History Team including the students who served refreshments and to the people who attended.
