Design a Christmas Card Competition 2020
It may seem early to be launching this but by the time the entries are in, judged, printed professionally and on sale it will be late November.
Competition rules:

  • Open to Years 7-11
  • One entry per student
  • Designs need to be on A4 or A5 card using any/mixed media
  • Remember that the design is going to be scanned and printed onto cards, therefore handmade features (i.e. glitter, sequins, and pompoms) will not work well
  • Hand in to Student Reception by Tuesday 3rd November.

If you have any questions about your entry and the format it can be, then see or email Miss Hawkes. Please be aware that by submitting your artwork, you are giving permission for its use by the Friends of Cottesloe School (FoC). All profits go to the FoC.

We look forward to receiving lots of entries!

Raising funds to enrich every students’ learning experience by bringing together the wider community



About the Friends of Cottesloe

The Friends of Cottesloe School is a group of parents and teachers who organise events throughout the year in order to raise extra funding for the School and its students. Funds are raised in many ways, from catering at sporting events, refreshments at open evenings and performances, to arranging social occasions for students and parents. Amongst the many ways we have been able to help the School, FoC have purchased laptops, mini-buses, sports equipment and outdoor classrooms, and contribute towards trips and visits!

With your support we hope to fund more great projects and equipment from which our students can benefit. The team would love to hear from parents who would like to contribute to the work FoC does. If regular commitment is not possible, there is a 'Helping Hands' list where you may be notified when extra help is required. Do get in touch if you can offer your support in any way.


We have signed up to Easyfundraising for staff, students and their parents & carers. Easyfundraising is the UK’s biggest charity shopping fundraising website. With over 3,500 online retailers, users raise money for the school while they shop online. Please follow this link.  You will need to sign up, but can opt to receive no emails. You can also add a shortcut button to your browser or device once you sign up to the app. 

Matched Funding - Can You Help?

Did you know that many large employers offer 'matching donations' to schools and charitable organisations where their employees help in fund raising. Employees do not need to do all of the fundraising themselves nor be a committee member, and we can provide you with some very easy ways in which to raise this money. So, if you work for HBOS, Abbey or any other large employer and you want to make a difference to your child's education, please contact the Friends of Cottesloe.
