Hello and welcome to the FOMS page!
Everyone who has a child, grandchild or family member or who cares for a child in the school can consider themselves a ‘Friend of Mengham Junior School- FOMS’. The aim of the group is to enhance your child’s time whilst at school and it is your opportunity to get involved while having some fun at the same time.
The ‘Friends’ look to work with the school in organising some fun activities and also to raise funds for those additional extras that make your child’s time at the school extra special.
In 2016 we ran both a Mother’s Day and Father’s Day gift shop where the children could come along and shop for lovely gifts for their loved ones. We also held a Spring disco and an Autumn disco, we supported the school at the Queens Tea Party celebrations in June and the Carols by Candlelight at Christmas. In addition we helped the school to run a Christmas design session, designs were then turned into items such as cards, mugs and tea towels for families to purchase and more. We are always open to new ideas and suggestions on fund raising and having fun!
Money raised in the past has gone towards trips and events for children, gifts for year six leavers and school equipment to support learning and development and so much more……..
We are an ever growing school and we ALWAYS need more people and would welcome anyone feeling like they might have some time to help. There is no pressure to attend every meeting or help at every event, in fact the more people that can help the less time we would need to donate.
Please if you do ever want to get involved then contact Julie at firstname.lastname@example.org.
