Friends of Stonebow
Please see our 'News & Events' section on the home page for up to date reports and photos of the 2016 events and how much we have raised.
FoS is a voluntary group of parents and teachers who organise events throughout the year to raise money for the school. We meet at least once a term. Our purpose is to raise funds to enhance the learning experience of the children of Stonebow.
Where does the money go?
All the money raised by FoS goes back to the school, enabling the school to get those extra things to improve the children's learning experience whilst also giving parents, carers etc an opportunity to get involved an 'make a difference'. Examples of where the money has gone over the last couple of years include:
- Outdoor classroom
- Playground Markings
- Bike Racks
- Visit from Zoo-Lab
- Drumming Workshop.
For this academic year (2015-16) our focus will be on Reading, supporting the school with projects to encourage children to love to read. This will include supporting improvements to the school library, funding a visit from an Author and purchasing tablets for the children to use in school. The more we raise the more we can do!
Each year we hold two Discos, a Sponsored Walk, as well as a Christmas and Summer Fair. All events are well attended and thoroughly enjoyed by the children and their families. They would not be possible without the help of the Parents, Carers, Grandparents and Teachers. It's great fun being part of these events and we would encourage and welcome more people to get involved.
We are also looking for new fundraising ideas, if anyone has any ideas, please do get in contact, we would love to hear from you. Some ideas being discussed at our meetings include a Quiz night, Fish, Chips and Bingo, Cinema event....
