A Clark: October 2016
News from FOWS: 6th October 2016
The FOWS AGM took place on 6th October. The following is a summary of the meeting content.
We are pleased to announce that we were able to appoint a FOWS committee for the school year 2016-17 as follows:
Chair -- Sam Heaton
Vice Chair -- position vacant
Treasurer -- Lyndon Jones
Secretary -- Amanda Clark
Sam's nomination was gratefully accepted on the understanding that the remaining, smaller FOWS team will only take on events which we can comfortably manage, and will distribute responsibilities as evenly as possible amongst all members.
We also welcomed new member Rachael Walker, who attended the meeting, and thank the following parents / carers for coming forward to offer their help with upcoming events: Jo Heath, Jenny Parry, Lorraine and Richard Cooke, Lesley and Darren Midwinter. If you wish to add your name to this list, please do let us know!!
FOWS will operate, in future, as a small team working alongside school staff to aid in their fundraising endeavours. We would like to consider all parents and carers as members of FOWS, all part of the same team working to make our children's time at primary school as happy and fulfilled as possible.
The treasurer's financial report for Sept 2015 -- Jul 2016 was presented:
Fundraising events raised a total profit of £2516 (income £4871, with an expenditure of £1815).
£10454 was spent on the Outdoor Classroom, coaches for school educational trips, and a gardening club course. These monies were taken from monies accrued by FOWS over a number of years.
Our next meeting will take place next Tuesday 11th Oct at 3.30pm in school -- ALL WELCOME. The items for immediate discussion will be the forthcoming Film Night and the Christmas Fair.
