The Friends of Abbotswood is also known as FOA.
We thought it would be a good idea to put a face to the names that you may hear or read about on newsletters and the school website.
In the picture above we have (Back row L-R) Vicky Tennent -Secretary who has a child in Year 5, our Chairperson - Caroline Stevens who has a child in Year 4, Sarah Brown - Vice Chair with a child in Year 4.
(Front row L-R) Judith Lakin a committee member with a child in Year 6, Lyn Manuel - Vice chair and has two children who are in Year 3 and Year 6, Amanda Inwood a committee member with a child in Year 4.
Not in the photograph: Lisa Vail - Treasurer with a child in Year 5, Jane Withers a committee member with a Year 6 child, Layla Hounsome a committee member with a Year 3 child and Andy Brown a committee member with a Year 4 child.
One of the main aims of the FOA is to raise money for the school to be spent on extras and treats. We are also keen to take on projects that will benefit the children’s learning both inside the classroom and outdoors.
Our events are planned with a focus on the children’s interests and we try to incorporate as much fun as possible. The FOA are always looking for new committee members please email firstname.lastname@example.org if you think you could be part of the team.
Alternatively, we have a list of helpers who we call on to support our events so please email above if you would like to volunteer.
“Becoming a committee member has given me a valuable insight in to the running of my child’s school. By giving a small amount of my time going to committee meetings and helping at events this benefits all our children.”
Next meeting: Thursday 12th January 2017 at 6pm
