Here are some before and after photos showing the huge impact the Friends had on the school when they gave up a day in the summer to do a spot of cleaning, tidying and general maintenance.
We are a small group of parents and teaching staff who are committed to raising extra funds for the school. We meet once every couple of months for approximately an hour to discuss and plan extra curricular events.
Our events range from winter fayres, bingo nights, film nights, bake offs, to coffee mornings and raffles. We also have methods of supporting FOHS online too, by means of registering your Co-op dividend card for the Community Champions Scheme and by online shopping through the ‘The Giving Machine’ page.
Some events are within the school day and some after school and are always aimed at being inclusive to all, following the school ethos of being a small family friendly school.
Our funds are used to aid the school with pantomime trips at Christmas, sports day refreshments, Year 6 leavers gifts, educational material for use within school and much more.
Being part of FOHS is very rewarding – not only is it a chance to meet other parents and make friends, but it is also a great opportunity to help the school with fundraising.
We always stress that no matter how much or how little time you have to give, everybody is welcome. If parents are unable to attend meetings, help is always required at events/on the day.
