2018/2019 was a fantastic year of fundraising for the FSS, raising an epic total of just over £14,000!
A huge thanks on behalf of the FSS Committee to the wider community and all those involved in POP this year, which generated an incredible £4,000 donation towards this total. The amazing support we received from parents and friends of Sherston School at our famous Quiz Night, our Christmas Fair and Olympics Day alike was also invaluable in boosting this total.
The fantastic efforts in 2018/19 have enabled the FSS to fund a broad range of extra educational opportunities and resources for the children to enhance their learning and development.
The highlights of our fundraising efforts over the last year for our teachers and children alike have included:
We have also funded; the science week planetarium, music week, iSing POP and theatre performance.
Alongside the financial support the FSS provides, we work closely with the school and local groups to deliver a range of extra-curricular activities enjoyed by all year groups throughout the school year. These include our ever popular Movie Nights and School Disco to name but a few.
We've already had lots of great discussions with the school to agree our fundraising prioirities for the year ahead. Outdoor Learning is something many on the FSS are passionate about and we are looking forward to working with the school in this area.
We're also delighted to see Young Voices return to the school calendar and have already provided funding for the large transport cost, just one element of the school’s considerations in undertaking such a privileged event for the pupils to be part of.
The new fundraising year has already seen some fantastic results...
We’ll continue to update you on all our fundraising efforts and are looking forward to what we can achieve together in 2019/20 - here's to another successful year!
