Fundraising update 2/6
We have had a phenomenal half term of fund raising up to Christmas, helped mainly by the Christmas shopping evening which was a massive success, as I’m sure those of you who came would agree, so thank you so much again for your generosity. We raised a total of £1570.11!
We have used this money for the pantomime goodie bags which every child who went on the day received, the Christmas treats at the KS1 Christmas parties, £20 per class in KS2 towards their Christmas parties and £402 for books, beanbags and shelving for all the KS1 children to enjoy.
There is much less activity this half term but we still need your help as we are working towards raising £2000 to pay for soft flooring which will compliment the new play area Mr Eadon has secured funding for.
Also look out for our new “Goodie Fridays” after school (details will be in the newsletter).
Thank you all once again for your continued support.
COMING UP THIS HALF TERM!
Remember we will be selling refreshments at all of the events for parents this half term including: Parents Evening, class assemblies and open afternoon. We will also be having Winter Wonderland discos for KS1 (4th December) and KS2 (11th December). Look out for further information coming soon.
Where your money goes?
The money raised by F.O.H.H is a valuable resource for school to use and we are aiming to communicate with you about what has been spent as often as possible. Here is a quick summary of what has been spent in school so far this academic year:
LATEST FUNDRAISING NEWS!
We are extremely proud to announce that the Vintage tea, Assembly refreshments and KS1 Disney Dreams and KS2 Halloween Discos raised a grand total of £800.01! This is a fantastic amount of money to be added to school funds in just one half term and we hope to continue with this success. Huge thanks to all of you for supporting school so generously, our amazing team of parents who organise, Mrs. Parrwood for her gorgeous cakes and DJ John Olney who does such a brilliant job at the discos.
Wow! The Disney Dreams disco was a huge success!
The children looked amazing and had a wonderful time. We will let you know how much we raised as soon as we've counted it all up. Look on the 'latest news' section for the photos. Thank you for your continued support.
