Friends of Hoylandswaine School
PTA or PA...That is the question.
We are an inclusive group of parents, carers, grandparents, governors and staff that meet for monthly meetings.
School budgets are tight, and there simply isn't the money available to spend on all the 'fun' stuff. So by running an active group we can fundraise for our School and ultimately our children.
FOHS isn't just about fundraising though. We also exist to provide activities and events that the children and their families enjoy, thus building a stronger community within School.
Over the year we have supported or will support; school bags for the new children, held a beetle drive, held Halloween discos, Christmas activities, Christmas discos, pancake races, mothers and fathers day gifts, Christmas and summer raffles, Christmas cards, Easter egg hunt, swishing event, provided refreshments at all the Schools major events, leavers gifts, which included a hoodie and the barn dance, which was a great success.
In addition to the above we also raise funds through the Easyfunding web link - a portal that donates a % as you purchase items on the internet - if you go through their browser,
This year we have been raising money for the Outdoor Learning Environment, a class sized room where the children can extend their learning outside.
If you are unable to attend the meetings but would like to share your ideas, volunteer to help at events or would be able to donate a prize for one of our family events please contact us via email Fohs1@hotmail.com
