Friends of Leigh upon Mendip School. (FOLS)
The PTA at our school is called Friends of Leigh School or FOLS for short. We’re a friendly and active PTA, raising around £5,000 a year for the school through a mix of activities and events. We meet up monthly, either at the school or the pub and we’re hoping to see many of you at our meetings.
Meet the Team:
All parents and carers are automatically members of FOLS and are welcome to attend meetings, the date of which is posted on our FOLS noticeboard in the school hall. If you are interested in joining the committee, please speak to any committee member. It isn’t too arduous and because we are a large group, we are able to spread the workload.
We’re really looking forward to welcoming you to our community.
The date for the next AGM is Tuesday 6th October 2020 at 7.30pm in the school hall.
Our aims and objectives are:
To raise money for the benefit of the children in response to requests from the school staff.
Funding for schools has been repeatedly cut in recent years. We’re proud that our PTA has been able to add joy and magic into the children’s education by providing enriching resources and activities. Included in this pack is a list of some of the ways we were able to support the school in the 2018-2019 school year.
We raise funds and build our community in the following ways;
We run a 100 Club
A Halloween Disco
An Easter Egg Hunt
Stewarding at the Glastonbury Music Festival
Supporting the Leigh upon Mendip Village Fair
Printer Ink Re-cycling
Second-hand clothes collections
End of Year Barbeque
Supporting School Plays and Nativities
