Welcome to Nythe Primary School. Some of you may already know me, for those that don’t, my name is Leanne Charlesworth, chairperson for FONS.
Friends of Nythe School (FONS) are a group of volunteers, who help the school by raising money via events, such as fetes, pamper evenings, sales, quiz nights and raffles. FONS have been running for 25+ years, raising tens of thousands of pounds for school projects over that time.
We are a small group, consisting of both teachers and parents who raise money for additional, non-funded items that the school require, like playground items and sports equipment.
We are now looking for new members to come on board to assist us with new ideas and future events that we will be planning. Without any help we are unable to plan future and bigger events. We are hoping to raise money to improve the school playground this year.
We aren’t asking for a lot of your time, we generally gather once a term for a short meeting, usually straight from school (children welcome to play). At this point we’ll discuss up and coming events and other ideas.
If you would prefer not to join to committee, but would be willing to help out at the events such as, running a stall at the summer fete or selling drinks at the school nativity, then we can add you to our parent helper list. This means we will contact you when an event is coming up to see if you are able to assist. If you can, then great, we’ll assign you a job. If you are busy, then nothing changes. It’s the ideal way to help the school out, without committing yourself to extra work.
If you are interested in helping, or for more information, please email me on Leannercharlesworth@gmail.com or speak to Mrs Fenton at the school office.
