Friends of Whaddon School

Welcome

 

Welcome to the Friends of Whaddon School (FoWS)!

 

This is a message for all prospective parents, new parents and of course current parents! Welcome all. I’m sure that you will see, quite quickly, what a wonderful community Whaddon School has. We very much look forward to meeting you.

 

The FoWS was set up many years ago, by parents, with the primary aim to raise funds for the school to benefit all children.  The FoWS has since become a registered charity.  It is run by constitution, under which an annual committee is elected to reside, whom also act as Trustees, under the rules of the Charities Commission.

 

The FoWS help organise many events throughout the year, including the Welcome BBQ, our traditional May Fair, Christmas Raffle and Christmas Lunch, Easter egg hunt and many others. We also provide additional resources to the school to help further an already outstanding learning environment. 2020 is a big year, the school is expanding and we need to raise funds for a new classroom!

 

To keep this very worthwhile association going, we would welcome your input, your support and maybe once you have settled in to the school, you might like to take on more of an active role. Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if you would like any further information as we are always on the look out for volunteers! 

 

You don’t have to physically attend events to help. Ideas and advice are always welcome so please feel free to e-mail us with anything. Donations are also always welcome, monetary or new items that can be used as prizes at events. 

 

FoWS information is sent out through Parentmail, as well as can be found either in the School Notice Board or via our Facebook page. If you would like to speak to any of the committee members at any point then do have a chat in the playground or e-mail us via friendsofwhaddon@gmail.com

 

With best wishes,

Lorna Orr - Treasurer
Anika James - Secretary
Grace Obidipe - Secretary
Emily Short - Chair
