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.
We will keep you informed on any further funding decisions that are made.
THANK YOU FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT
TOGETHER WE CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE
