Welcome to the Friends of Tansley School section.
FOTS Update 2019/20
Thanks to the support of parents, pupils, staff and the community we raised an amazing £4328 last year!
These are just some of the events that we organised:
• Fashion Show Evening at the Gate (£832)
• Halloween & Easter Discos (£336)
• Tuck Shop & Collection at Bonfire Night (£309)
• Christmas and Summer Fairs (£1225)
• Tansley Hill Run (£1020)
A very big thank you to all who give up their time to help organise and run these events, we couldn’t have raised such a fantastic amount without you.
Last year we were able to fund two big purchases alongside the usual class Christmas presents and book bags for children starting in reception:
• The outdoor classroom (£5688)
• 60 new chairs (£1086)
At our AGM on Monday 30th September we discussed lots of things that school are in need of and we’ll be working closely with Mrs Barker over the next few weeks to finalise our spending plan. There are some equipment needs but we also hope we can treat the children too so watch this space!
