How FOAS Raise Funds
We organise different fundraising events and activities throughout the school year to raise vital extra funds to support the school. Here are just some of them.
Over the last few years FOAS have organised a Christmas shop, allowing pupils to buy presents, which they wrap themselves for family members so it is a surprise at Christmas. We always need parent volunteers to help for a couple of hours each day in the shop. This is one of the most popular events with children and raises over £1000.
Personalised Christmas Cards, Mugs and T-Towels
All children produce their own personalised Christmas card design, which parents can buy in packs of 12 or printed on a mug, t-towel or gift tag. The school earns a percentage of every item sold, which has equated to over £500!
Annual Summer Fair
The annual Summer Fair takes place on a Saturday in June at the School. The traditional stands include; Bouncy Castles, Face Painting, Games and Children's Entertainment, a visit from the Emergency Services, BBQ & Bar, Cake Sale, Raffle, Tombola, Arts and Crafts for sale and much more! This is a big event to organise, so please do volunteer a little bit of your time if you can either on the day or with the organising in the run up to the event. It has raised between £2,500 and £5,000 for the FOAS fund.
We have run a KS1 (Reception - Year 2) and KS2 (Year 3 - Year 6) discos with a proper DJ and disco lights after school in the school hall, providing drinks and snacks. Children buy tickets to go and all the profits go to the FOAS fund. These discos have been very popular with both children and parents!
