FOSS Pop-up Fashion Event – Friday 28th February 2020
In order to support the children’s focus on recycling, we had a new event on Friday focusing on fashion, books and crafting (with some obligatory cake!) Thank you to everyone who supported the event; it was a really fab hour with some excellent bargains and fascinating finds. The children had fun on the craft table making all sorts of wonderful creations from items that would otherwise be thrown out (plus a fair amount of sparkle and googly eyes). Everyone enjoyed the refreshments (big thanks to the bakers!) and we even had a couple of glamorous volunteers for the catwalk to display their outfit creations.
An excellent event for everyone to have a good clear-out while finding some fabulous bargains. We were thrilled to have made £298.68 in total, definitely a win win for home and school funds.
Christmas Wreath Night – 4th December 2019
In a new addition to the FOSS calendar this year, twenty five parents and friends of the school were treated to a fun, festive night of wreath making in the village hall. We were very lucky to have Charlotte Douglas, Joan Watson, Gwen Foster and Margaret Ogle on hand to guide us through and demonstrate what they should look like. With their expert advice and help, everyone left feeling very festive and with wonderful wreaths all ready for our doors. Thank you to everyone who helped by baking/bringing nibbles for the evening and to those who contributed raffle prizes (we were all hoping to win one of Charlotte’s floral table displays or Mrs English’s wonderful Christmas cake!)
As well as having a fun social night, we also raised a wonderful £332.61 so it was a real success.
Thank you very much Gordon the Turkey, you really can run quite fast!!!

A massive thank you to everyone who turned up and supported our Early Halloween disco yesterday. A fantastic 50 hyper Monsters and Ghouls (and some princesses and Hulks thrown in to boot) checked in to Commemmoration Hall as they were entertained by ‘Discoman’ John. There were prizes given for Best Costume and Best Dancing which were won by Robin Irish and Bea Stephenson respectively. It’s fab to get the kids together for a last ‘hooray’ before half-term begins. The photos will be on the Website shortly!!
A HUGE thanks to Leanne, Phil and Rachel for helping to decorate the Hall, it looked amazing…well you can never have too many spooky decorations!!! Thanks also to Claire and her hubby for making some last minute giant spiders (one of which was last seen flying high in the direction of Slaley Hall). Thanks to everyone else helping at the Disco (Jacqui, Cara, Joanna, Penny, Charlotte and Ching)…your help means we can continue to run these types of events, so “Thank you!”
