Friends of Winnall Primary School (PTA)

Welcome to the FoWPS Section (PTA)

Summer Fete - 28th June 2019

 

A HUGE thank you to everyone who was involved with donations, setting up the fete, running the stalls and clearing away after the event.  The event was very busy with lots of fun stalls including tin can alley, teddy tombola, asteroid blaster, a bouncy castle, welly toss, guess the name of the teddy, guess the number of sweets in the jar, spin the wheel & of course the grand prize raffle.  We also had a fantastic BBQ & Cafe with thanks to Mr & Mrs Rhodes, a cake stall, candy floss and Mrs Jameison's sweet stall.  

 

A particular thank you to Jessica Paine from the FoWPS who coordinated the event, and also to Mrs Denny & Mrs Holmes for stepping in with face painting and face glitters at the last minute.  

 

We raised around a whopping £1700... final amount to be confirmed.  This money will go directly to benefit the children of Winnall Primary School and will be extremely well used.

 

As a final note, the Friends (PTA) will NEED new members from September, as some of the current committee will be stepping down.  Please come along to the next meeting and show your support.  It is very important to point out that if we had no PTA, then this money wouldn't be raised for the children & valuable resources.  With the Summer Fete, the Christmas Fayre & the Disco's, around £3500-£4000 is raised for the children!

Who are the Friends and What do they do?

 

The Friends of Winnall Primary School (FoWPS) are a group of parents who organise all the fundraising events for the school.  This includes the Christmas fayre, the Halloween disco, the Easter disco and the Summer fete.  

 

This year the FoWPS have provided money towards one school trip per class.  This has meant parents/carers have only had to contribute small amounts.  Year R are visiting Longdown Activity Farm in July, year 1 and 2 are visiting Beaulieu at the beginning of July, year 3 and 4 went to The Sea City Museum in January and year 5 and 6 visited The Science Centre in February.  

 

The FoWPS have this year bought every child in the school a book for World Book Day (March 2018), purchased a number of table tennis tables that have been well used in after school clubs (January 2018) and bought an Arbour Seat for the KS2 playground in the Spring.

 

  • We are always looking for new fundraising ideas
