MARCH 2017. Completion of the Outside Studio.. thankyou to FOSS for their four years of fundraising for this addition to our learning space.
£7,100 RAISED 2015-16 THANKYOU
Over the past three and a half years Friends of Spaldwick School (FOSS) has raised an amazing £25,000 for your child’s school. This is thanks to the support from parents, the children, school staff, governors and the members of FOSS. I am sure you will agree this is a fantastic amount for our school.
All the money is ploughed straight back to the school and most recently FOSS has purchased or help purchase;
- the Cleverboards which you see in every classroom;
- the new covered area;
- 2 new computers in ICT suite;
- literacy resources;
- class kindles;
- specialist days to support the curriculum;
- school sports kit;
- school trips for each class; and
- KS2 swimming.
This money is raised by events including the Festive Fayre, disco nights, BBQ at Spaldwick fete, RAGTEX collections, film nights, academic year memorabilia (school photographs and calendars etc), sponsored events as well as donations from local villages. Although our main function is to raise money, we also want to provide fun social events for the children which they will remember.
As a group, including both parents and school staff, we meet informally once a term, plan the events, discuss areas for development that FOSS can support and discuss new ideas for fundraising.
This year we will be losing a significant number of our members as their children leave the school to go onto Secondary school. We are therefore looking for new members to help us to continue the fundraising, bring new ideas and in so doing playing an active part in enriching every child’s experience at Spaldwick School.
It takes up to 12 people to organise and run some events but if there of enough members we can spread this between us rather than relying on the same group for every event.
If you and other parents from school are interested and would like to help please contact Mrs Rachael Woodhall, FOSS chair or catch one of the committee in the playground.
WE NEED VOLUNTEERS NOW TO HELP IF WE ARE TO CONTINUE RAISING THIS MONEY AND OF COURSE ‘MANY HANDS MAKE LIGHT WORK’!
