FODS - Our PTA
FODS Friends of Donnington School
Hello to all and welcome to Friends of Donnington School (FODS).
As parents, we are all part of the Parents and Teachers Association and play a vital and equal role in the success of our school. FODS has been set up to encourage close links between ourselves (parents) and the school, and one of our most important roles is organising fundraising events. As well as being great fun for children and adults alike, the money we raise goes back into the school to provide the best possible resources and equipment to benefit our children. Projects such as the Christmas Cracker pull; presents from Father Christmas and Year 6 leaving gifts are a few of the things FODS have helped to pay for. More importantly, money raised by FODS has enabled children to go on educational visits and to have special visitors and workshops in the school – these experiences are vital if we want our children to enjoy a broad curriculum and engaging and stimulating learning experiences.
As parents, we need to work collaboratively to develop a school community that is passionate about providing the very best for each and every child. This can only be done as part of a concerted effort from us all – working together towards a common goal.
So, if you would like to get involved (no matter how little or how much) please contact the school office, your child’s class teacher or speak to a member of the committee. We meet usually once every half term when the teams plan and organise the various events that occur over the course of the school year and we are always looking for new ideas. We will send out letters or texts to keep you informed of what’s going on so please try to get involved and have your say!
We look forward to seeing some new faces.
