Welcome to the Friends of Helmdon School (FOHS) page of our website. Parents are automatically members of the Friends of Helmdon School (our Parent Teacher Association, or FOHS for short). We are a charity that is here to provide all the children at the school with extra fun, resources and experiences throughout their Primary school career. Our committee members are as follows:
Chair: Laura Wilson
Secretary: Jen Castle
Committee members: Sophie Harwood, Tammie Webb, Danielle Herlihy, Fi Kirkham.
We have lots of exciting events that we run during the school year, including regular events such as Key Stage cake sales, discos, Christmas and Easter celebrations and one off events such as fetes/quizzes etc.
After lots of fundraising, our main donation in the past year was an £11,000 cheque which was used to part fund our new library building in the bottom playground. In addition, we have provided the following treats for the children:
1. Year 6 leavers’ gifts
2. Pancakes for our annual pancake races
3. Ice lollies for Sports Day
4. Christmas presents
Please feel free to approach any member of the committee with questions or suggestions for fundraising ideas – we are always keen to hear new ideas. All help, however large or small, is greatly appreciated. We look forward to working with you and building on the contribution that FOHS provides to the school.
