WHY NOT JOIN THE 100 CLUB?

 

Due to the pandemic, opportunities for fundraising may be limited this school year.   Therefore, now is the perfect time to join the 100 club and show your continued and much appreciated support to FOSS and our school community.  

 

It costs just £2 per month.  Each month, a cash prize of £50 is up for grabs (See list of recent winners below). 

 

For further details, please email reception for a membership form or drop us a message on our Foss Simonstone Facebook page.   

HOW WE USE YOUR MONEY

During the 2019-2020 academic year, we held a range of fundraising events including:

School Discos

Film Nights

Christmas Gala

Personalised Christmas Cards

Funds raised during such events have paid for:

Year 3 Ukulele lessons

New Key Stage 1 balance bikes

School craft supplies

Year 6 Leaver Hoodies

Partial Pantomime ticket subsidy per child

New Nativity Key Stage 1 Costumes

Christmas Selection Boxes from Santa

 

 In addition, we also had a very special visit at Christmas from the Grinch and Cindy Lou Who!  

All of the above simply would not be possible with your continued support!
