Friends of Dene Magna Association

For updates, follow us on Facebook!

 FDMALogoFriends 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.

Race Night - Friday 13 October:

Our first ever Race Night went ahead on Friday 13 October. It was a great evening of fun and laughter and we managed to raise £280, from our flutters on the horses!  This will be split between the English department and FDMA for other fundraising pots within the school.

We rely on support from the Community to help raise funds for Dene Magna which is divided between departments within the school to provide better resources for all students. Please add our events to your diaries and come along and join in the fun.
