We always welcome new members on the committee and are always looking for volunteers to help man events. Without the volunteers the events for both parents and your children simply will not be able to take place. If you are interested in joining the committee or would not like to commit to the committee but would like to put yourself forward for helping out at the events, please contact the school office.
We are very fortunate at our school to have a PTA that is, and has been, such an integral part of the school community for many years. In its’ time the PTA has raised thousands of pounds, which have been spent on improving equipment and resources to enhance our children’s education and the facilities in school.
However our PTA is about much, much more than just fundraising. The PTA exists to provide closer links between home and school. It is an excellent way to bring staff, parents and friends together socially in support of the school and working towards a common goal. It is fun too – just ask any of the PTA committee members or helpers. Obviously, as in any organisation, there are times when it is more challenging, but with the continued support of parents and staff, our PTA has always succeeded in its efforts.
All parents and members of the school community can get involved if they want to, even if they only have a small amount of time available, and all parents are automatically members of the Friends Association when their children join our school.
The PTA is extremely conscious of the aims, Christian ethos and values of our school and we try very hard when organising and planning events to respect this. Not all of our events are run as fundraisers.
We hold regular committee meetings and everyone is welcome. Everyone is invited to our AGM which is usually held in October in the school hall. I hope you will be able to come along and find out what we have achieved over the last year and what our plans are for the future.
The FOHS had a brilliant time last year raising money for school through the discos, fetes, wine evening, quiz nights and much more. The fun side of school is a vital part of our children’s growing up and these experiences will last with them for a long time.
