Who’s who in Friends

Friends of Chandlers Ridge are a small group of parents who volunteer their time to help raise funds for your school.  Many of us work full, or part time, so any help we can get at events is always welcome.  We usually meet once or twice a term to arrange activities and events.

We would love some new members, so, if you’re interested, please get in touch with any of us by email at, or message us here.
