What we do

Over the years, we have purchased many items for the school to enhance our children's learning. Our biggest achievement to date has been to raise £8,000 towards the Adventute Playground, as well as additional items for individual classes as needed as well as Laptops, gardening equipment, cooking equipment, bird feeders and wet play equipment.


How do we do it?

We hold fundraising events throughout the year,  for example, personalised Christmas gifts, we have cake sales, film nights, Christmas Fair, lolly sales, a summer fair, coin collecting, quiz nights, and a visit from Father Christmas and designing Christmas cards and tea towels.

 Please see our school Newsleters for details.


Who can join?

All parents and guardians of children in the school are automatically members of FODWIS.  Any parent or guardian is very welcome to join the committee and attend meetings at any time.
