FOLS exists to raise extra funds to help the school pay for trips and equipment that School might not otherwise be able to have. For example, we will help with the cost of transport to swimming lessons and/or class trips. FOLS relies on parents’ support and enthusiasm to assist the school in giving our children fun and educational experiences.
Throughout the year we organise events that everyone can get involved with – sometimes our aim is to raise funds, sometimes it’s just to have some fun and provide a chance for the children, their families and the community to get together!
Past events have included Easter Bunny Chocolate Bingo, the Summer Fair, a Barn Dance, a Beetle Drive, the Big Breakfast and of course our popular Christmas Hamper Raffle.
FOLS is made up of a small group of parents who hold bi-monthly meetings to discuss fundraising ideas. We are always looking for fresh ideas and new faces to join us. Every child at Lowther School benefits from the money FOLS makes and to that end we encourage every parent, carer or relative to try and get involved in whatever way they can.
Our next meeting will be in the Autumn Term, please look out for the date being announced on here. If you can spare half an hour, please do pop along for a drink and a chat. Everyone really is welcome!
You can contact FOLS through Laura Price in the school office – 01931 712344.
Thank you to everyone who came and supported our recent Summer Fair.
A special thank you too must go to our: prize donaters, raffle ticket sellers, cake bakers, tea and coffee makers, ice-cream sellers and face painters! Without your hard work we wouldn't have raised the fabulous amount of £392.82
