FOPS (Friends of Paddox School)
The Friends Of Paddox School (FOPS for short) are the Paddox Primary P.T.A. We are a group of mums, dads and teachers who work together to organise social and fundraising events throughout the year. We aim to put on fun events for children and parents whilst also raising money for the school. FOPS also provides an opportunity to meet other parents who are able to give a bit of their time to helping their children's school.
All parents are automatically members of the P.T.A., and we always welcome new parents to join in. Any help you can give will be appreciated. Please see the school calendar online, or the school newsletter for upcoming events and meetings.
A Science dome:- £1,570
Early Years Foundation Stage learning sheds:- £2,469
6 air conditioning units:- £2,388
Coach travel on school trips:- £1,500
This would enable children to grow their own food and hopefully in time provide our school kitchen with some produce. It would provide an invaluable ongoing learning opportunity.
To achieve this we need to raise an ambitious sum of money, so in the first instance we are looking to raise £12,000. FOPS have already started to plan fundraising events, which we are sure you will support as you always do. However we are aware that many parents would like to be more involved with fundraising but aren't always free to offer help at these events. With this in mind, we encourage all of you take this opportunity to come up with ideas and work with your friends to raise money towards the target. This could be through sponsorship, creating something to sell, ticketed events, sports activities or anything else you may come up with.
