At Sutton Veny every parent/carer is a Friend of the School and we invite your involvement and encouragement. The Friends of School Committee are elected at the annual general meeting. They then meet throughout the year, to work in partnership with the school, and help provide a wide range of events and activities for the children, their families and for the community to enjoy.
FOS is currently co-chaired by Mrs Jo Walkworth and Mrs Helen Stocker. Mrs Emma Brown is the secretary and Mrs Sara Blunt is the treasurer.
The funds that are raised by FOS greatly help to enhance the resources in school and provide further opportunities for the children, for this we are all extremely grateful. Forthcoming FOS events and achievements are detailed on the termly school newsletter. The FOS are always looking for volunteers to support events throughout the year. Please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org if you would like to help, or would like to be included on the FOS meeting minutes circulation.
Information for you:
AGM – The AGM will be on Wed 13th June at 9am in the village hall and all are welcome. We will be voting in the committee positions for the next school year and are seeking a new Chair and Secretary and would love to hear from anyone who is interested in either of these positions.
Cake sale – Well done and thank you to Elliston class for raising a fantastic £166.70 at their cake sale. We look forward to Nelson hosting the next cake sale on Friday 22nd June.
Book sale – Thank you for supporting the book sale last term which raised £69.60. We were overwhelmed with the generosity of book donations and so plan to hold another sale later on this term. The school have also gratefully received some of the books into the class libraries for the children to enjoy. Thank you!
Auction of Promises – we hope you have enjoyed browsing the brochure of promises you received before half term. A copy of the brochure can be found on the FOS page of the school website. We are raising money for ukuleles and cameras for the whole school to enjoy and really encourage everyone to join in the fun and submit a bid on something you fancy – you might just win! Please send your bids either by email or to the school office by 6pm on Friday 15th June.
Sutton Veny Flower Show – FOS will be serving cream teas in the village hall for this year’s Flower Show on Saturday 14th July! We would love to hear from any parents who could offer their baking skills or help on the day for 1 hour. Further details will follow later this term.
