The Friends of Henley School Noticeboard
Welcome from the Friends of Henley School (FOHS) - Your Parent Teacher Association
Friends of Henley School is a group of parents, grandparents and staff who raise funds to support the teaching activities of the school. As you will be aware, school budgets are under pressure and the school is only able to fund things that are directly related to the curriculum.
The support from FOHS has made a fantastic contribution to the education of the children at this school, by providing funds for extra sports equipment, cameras and projectors, outside seating and play equipment, school pets, and most significantly, assisting in funding the cost of school trips – where the children are taken off-site for learning activities. Class 1 trips tend to be local, with Class 2 venturing as far as Colchester, but Classes 3 and 4 go as far afield as London. As you can imagine, the cost of coaches is significant!
FOHS achieves this by organising activities and events such as school discos, film & quiz nights, camping nights at school, fêtes, cake stalls etc. Our events are for all ages and we organise them to get as many children as possible attending and having fun with their friends.
Please look at the 'events & diary dates' page for details of the activities we have organised and below for ongoing fundraising news and schemes, such as newspaper/supermarket vouchers.
All parents are welcome to come along to our meetings, this does not mean you are under any obligation to do anything or join the committee, but it is great to see new faces and share fresh ideas.
We look forward to your support, as the money raised by FOHS helps your child have a better education.
