FRIENDS OF THORPE SCHOOL ASSOCIATION (FOTSA)
Whether it’s cake baking, running a stall at a fete, handing out Easter eggs or washing the hands of children after a painting session – FOTSA members love to get involved at our school!
All parents automatically belong to FOTSA (a Friends Association rather than a traditional Parents Association), and all that we ask is for a little help to make a big difference. The fund-raising work of FOTSA supports the needs of the school whilst making sure that all the social events are loved by our children.
FOTSA events being organised so far this year:
- Regular cake sales
- Christmas disco
- Christmas Market
- Special Persons Art Exhibition
- Easter Egg Hunt
- Easter Bonnet Competition
- Sponsored Bike Ride
- Summer Fayre
All the money raised is swiftly spent in supporting the school – a £10K challenge was made and met by FOTSA last year, to finance a temporary classroom for the children. More news on this soon.
We also help towards the costs of the swimming pool, and much much more.
Please come along to the next meeting to find out what the next fund-raising event will be (see diary) and how you can get involved.
