A message from FoDS

Thank you for the brilliant support for the cake sale. Families from Oulton Class did a great job providing the cakes which sold well, with a fabulous £65.00 being raised.

The Bag2school was also a big success and many orders for Christmas cards have been made. This year, fundraising is supporting playground equipment, French dictionaries for each class and the transport to the pantomime.

Our next planning meeting is on Wednesday 7th November at 2.30pm at the school. Come along to share your fundraising ideas!
