Friends of Fernwood
Who are we?
Friends of Fernwood is an informal group of parents, carers and staff who support the school by organising fundraising events, including our annual Summer Fair, cake sales, bingo night and more.
All of the money we raise goes straight back into the school – helping us helps your child and your child’s school. We aim to run activities that will foster a sense of community within the school, whilst also raising funds that will broaden the range of activities and resources that all our children access and enjoy.
We hold formal termly meetings at the school, with the school’s senior management team, where parents and carers are invited to input ideas on fundraising and indeed where our raised funds could be spent. At each meeting we also have our ‘Parent Voice’ discussion topics, a forum for sharing best practice and ways for continual improvement.
We are always grateful to anyone who can lend us a little of their time, whether it be giving us a prize donation or helping out at one of our events. It’s easy to support the school; you could:
bake or buy some treats for a cake sale
serve refreshments before a school performance
sell raffle tickets for one of our up and coming events
donate unwanted presents to a tombola or raffle
look after a stall at the Christmas Shopping Evening
contribute ideas at a termly formal meeting
attend our events
Volunteers contribute as and when they can – no obligation. All support is greatly appreciated!
Keep In Touch!
We will keep you up to date with future events, circulate minutes from our termly meetings and let you know of anything you can help us with such as donations, or your time.
Our future events are always included on the Fernwood Newsletter.
Have your say!
Termly meetings are held at the school alongside our Parent Voice discussion topics – all parents/carers welcome.
Next meeting: Wednesday 23rd January, 7pm, Junior Building
