We are a group of parents, teachers and volunteers whose primary role is to support our school by organising activities, helping with the school activities and events, as well as raising money for our children. As we are a registered charity an Annual General Meeting (AGM) is required once a year, usually in October.
We try to organise social events for the children and the family and of course some ‘grown up’ events! To do this we aim to meet on a regular basis, on average once per half term to arrange and organise.
Our regular events include a Pumpkin Party with a disco, hot dogs, drinks and games. The children always have a great time. The money raised throughout the year also sends the whole school to a pantomime at Christmas, “Oh no you don't”... “Oh yes we do”.
Past projects include, refurbishing the children's cookery room, helping finance the outdoor classroom, the installation of netball posts and cameras for the classrooms.
There are always ideas for fundraising events however we are always open to new and fresh ideas.
Every parent and carer is automatically a member of FOBS. It's up to you how much or how little you are willing or able to take part in to help your children. You can either be a helper or join the committee. If you would like to get involved on way or another then please come along to the next meeting to meet everyone and see what it's all about. It is a very friendly atmosphere and everyone is welcome.
You can either ask at the school office for details or speak with Venessa Jones (Chairman & Treasurer) or Claire Garden (Secretary).
It would be great to see you, the more the merrier.
