Friends of the Oaks
The Friends of the Oaks is a supportive group of mums, dads, carers, grandparents & other family members.
These members help to organise events which help raise much needed funds for those extras that are not included in the school budget.
Some of the events we have organised:
- Summer fayre
- Christmas fayre
- Year 6 Leavers Parties
- Car Boot Sales
- Easter fun & Quiz nights……. These are just a few and we would love to be able to do more…….
THESE EVENTS HAVE RAISED SOME AMAZING AMOUNTS OF MONEY THROUGHOUT THE YEARS, WHICH HAS BOUGHT SOME FANTASTIC EQUIPMENT FOR THE SCHOOL; SUCH AS
- I-pads and Computers
- Sound systems for the halls
- Playground equipment
- Shade sails
The children have taken great pride in these as they have helped with the fund raising.
We currently have about 15 members in our group, most of our members work full time and part time alongside volunteering and would really welcome support from any other parents, even if only on an event by event basis.
This year we are looking at holding some coffee afternoons, for parents/carers and other family members and of course the children, so we can get together to catch up. At a recent meeting, it was a very positive and fun time when lots of people turned up for tea and cake and the children all had a great time sitting colouring and chatting together. As well as these we would love to run some more after school events like our recent bingo and quiz night.
We would love to see some new smiles and hear lots fresh ideas for our group. Please feel free to contact us if you have any questions. E-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org
