Who are Friends of Winterfold (FOW)?
Friends of Winterfold is a fundraising committee run by the parents of children at the School and staff representatives.
What do Friends of Winterfold do?
We help to provide all those little extras that enhance the children’s lives in school, provide money for additional facilities and resource. Also, we arrange lots of events for the families and parents to get together in a more social environment.
Recent highlights include:
- Christmas Market with an array of Christmas stalls, cafe, Santa’s Grotto and music.
- Bonfire Party with an amazing firework display that was enjoyed by everyone
- Assisted with the funding of Roald Dahl week where the children participated in various activities.
- Organised a Pre-prep Christmas Disco
- Held the annual Christmas Markets with food, games and stalls – and Santa!
- Portrait bags of the children
- We have purchased outdoor table tennis tables for the older children to use during break times
- Eco-garden – contributed to an external team to help clear the garden and teach the children at the same time. The next stage will be planting and maintaining.
- Re-surfacing the pre-prep adventure playground
- Paid for specialised speaker to hold a workshop with the children and parents about internet safety
- A Night at the Races – A fun evening for the parents was held at the school. 50% of the funds raised went to winners and 50% to FOW.
We need your help!
The success of these events and fundraising depends entirely on the support of the parents and staff. We need a cross-section of mums, dads and guardians from the Nursery upwards.
Come and find out more:
Attend a FOW meeting which takes place each term – it is great for new parents to meet other parents and we also welcome those who have been with Winterfold for many years. The next meeting will take place on 18th January at 7.30pm. All welcome!
