Friends of Ganton School (FROGS)

FROGS is a group of parents, carers, staff and friends of Ganton School and is a registered charity. Together with the school, FROGS organise fundraising events and offer practical or emotional support to other families or simply coffee and cake.

Projects completed in the recent past include the fantastic Primary playground, minibus replacement, swimming pool equipment and extra classroom resources across the school.

Future funding is needed to revamp the Primary cycle track and to develop a Sensory Trail through the Secondary site.

Look out for the dates of future meetings and events throughout the year and follow us on Twitter @FROGSinHull or join our closed FROGS Facebook page.
