FOSWS (Friends of Sebert Wood School) are a small group of parents/carers who get together to raise funds for the school (more commonly known as a PTA). All profits made from our events go back into the school to help with additional purchases which benefit all the children whilst they have fun along the way.
Our current Chair is Nina Dallorzo
Vice Chair is Debra Peachey
Secretary is Liz Rahim
Treasurer is Kathryn Watts
Our events are a lot of fun and very rewarding to see the children enjoying themselves. There is a lot of hard work and organisation going into each event. The main events are the Christmas and Summer Fairs, discos, cake sales, to name but a few. We also help the school with sponsored events.
This year we have funded the new Reception garden and playground paintings, paid for year 2 to go to the Pantomime at the Theatre Royal, subsidised school trips (which we do every year), various pieces of sports equipment i.e. table tennis table and many other exciting projects throughout the School.
If you’d like to get involved, even for just half an hour at an event, please email FOSWSteam@gmail.com. We meet on the first Monday of each month to discuss and prepare for events and also ways to spend the money for the school.
FOSWS SUMMER EVENT – FRIDAY 12TH JULY 2019
We would like to thank everyone who came and supported our new Summer venture by way of a music festival on Friday evening. Some people did not want to go home as they were enjoying it so much. The music was performed by three bands from West Suffolk College, who can’t wait to come back next year.
We made a delightful profit of £2760.44, which is ready to spend on our Sebert Wood children to enhance their learning.
We would welcome any feedback from the event, any suggestions, etc for the next one, as there will definitely be one.
Have a lovely Summer holiday and we look forward to organising more fundraising events for the children next term.
