Christmas Bazaar

This year our Christmas Bazaar will take place on Saturday 25th November, so why not pop along. There will be plenty of stalls and a visit to the grotto is a must. Raffle tickets have been sent home, so for your chance to win £50 cash, a Christmas hamper and many more fantastic prizes just return your completed stubs along with your money (£1.00 a book) by Friday 24th.

 

Non-Uniform Day

Your child/children can come to school  on Friday 24th November in their own clothes in return for a chocolate donation to support the chocolate tombola at the Christmas Bazaar.

 

Southam Christmas Light Switch On

This year FOSPS is branching out into the community by having a stall at the Christmas light switch on. So why not pop along and see us and play some games. We will also be selling hand made wooden snowmen ( these will be on show at the Christmas Bazaar)

It would be great to see you all on Sunday 26th November between 11-6pm.

 

Event Helpers

If you have any spare time on your hands  and feel you could give some time to either help set up, run a stall or pack away at any of our events then let us know. You could leave your details at the main office or talk to any of the FOSPS team. On Friday 24th Nov we will be preparing for the Bazaar, so if your could come along and help between 1-3pm or if you would like to give us a hand at the Christmas light switch on it would be much appreciated.

 

 

A Huge Thank-you from all the FOSPS Team

Thank-you for your support in all of our events. I think you would agree it has been a fun filled year. The cake sales again have been a great success, our new Mother's day sale was really popular and from the feedback that we received the children loved choosing a gift. The disco was enjoyed by all and the Easter raffle went down a treat. Congratulations to all who were lucky enough to win an egg. The children loved working along side both  the poet and artist in residence and the Summer fair was one of the best for fund raising that we have ever had.Lastly the ice cream Fridays were again a great success. We are looking forward to the next fund raising year and welcoming some new member at our AGM. 

 

Ideas for fund raising events

FOSPS are always looking for new fund raising ideas, if you attend an event or hear of any fund raising events that you think would be a good way for us to raise money for the school, then feel  free to pop along to one of our meetings or just let a FOSPS member know.
