Who are we?
The FP Association was re-formed after the fire in March 2001 to support the school in it’s temporary accommodation and to add weight to the clamour to have the building restored to it’s former glory.
With the school now back “home” our vision is to establish a fund to assist Morgan Academy in providing activities that will enhance the education of the pupils. All our members have a keen interest in seeing Morgan pupils achieving the best and fullest educational benefit from their time in school.
What are we doing?
Since 2001 we have given over £200,000 to the school, 2 mini buses, replaced the gates and railings at the bottom of the lawn, supported the Duke of Edinburgh expeditions, many educational trips in Scotland, England, France, Germany and USA, Study Support Groups.
We presented a new solid silver ‘STAR’ for the House Championship, supported Prize giving and many individuals with sporting representation and gap years. Funds were also provided for tablets for pupils and new musical instruments.
Archive Room /Museum
This has been established in the tower with many records, photographs and memorabilia.
What do I get for my Subscription?
You get the satisfaction of knowing you are helping in a small way, to give current pupils the opportunity to participate in the types of extra-curricular activities that we took for granted when we were at the Morgan. With all funding from the local authority for activities like Duke of Edinburgh’s Award Scheme, cultural exchanges etc. having been stopped, without support from the Association, activities like these, may cease altogether, which would be to the detriment of the current generation of pupils.
You also receive regular Newsletters. So that as much of your subscription as possible is circulated back to the school, these are produced and distributed by the Committee largely in their own time and at minimal cost to the Association.
Can I make a donation in addition to my annual subscription?
Of course, you can make a donation at any time. The more funds the Association has at its disposal, the more can be passed on to the school, to keep extra-curricular activities going.
