Hi... welcome to your PTA! With the enthusiastic support of parents, carers, friends, pupils and staff, Friends of Highfields School (FOHS) run a wide variety of social and fundraising events!
Friends of Highfields School aims to:
- Raise funds to enhance the quality of school life at Highfields by supplementing the budget available to the school
- Help provide the opportunity for social interaction outside the school's normal parameters.
- Develop links with the wider community.
These goals are achieved by the organisation of a variety of events throughout the school year, some for pupils, some for parents and some fore teh wider community. The funds raised by these events are donated to the school to purchase equipment, books, treats and other resources needed for the children.
Here are some of the events organised by FOHS during the school year:
- Quiz Night
- Christmas Disco
- Christmas Bazaar
- Easter Extravaganza
- Summer Fete
- Fizz Fashion Show
- Blitz Family Fireworks Event - Chinese New Year Celebration
- Bingo night
- Games night
- End of Year Disco
We also run fabric recycling through Bags2Schools twice a year, have Christmas, Fathers Day and Mothers Day wrapping rooms, and produce Christmas cards made by your children!
The additional funds raised through FOHS, have been used to pay for:
- Coaches for the Christmas Trips
- iPads/iPad Minis
- New equipment such as a PA System
- Play equipment
- Outdoor classroom
- Contribution for every class towards a school trip each year
- Leavers gifts and party
- Christmas party
- The Book Bag that each new starter receives
If you would like to get involved by joining the committee or becoming a member and volunteering to help out at events, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org or via your Class Representative.
We hold our meetings in the pub and welcome new faces and old! We would love to hear your fresh ideas!!
Please remember, funds raised by FOHS benefit every child at Highfields and we cannot run these events without your support.
