FOBS is the school charity for Brightwell Primary School. It exists to raise funds for school projects and equipment for the children, enhancing their experience during their time at the school. FOBS also exists to promote social events so that teachers, parents and children can all interact and get to know each other better. FOBS’ great strength lies in the community spirit within the school and the village and from the input by parents and school staff into the fundraising plans, all the way from embryonic ideas for future events to selling tickets and manning the stalls at those events. The main ongoing projects at school, which FOBS are helping to raise money for, are improvements to the playground/outside learning areas and updating of the school’s ICT (information and communication technology) equipment.
Throughout the summer we have some wonderful events planned including:
Tea in the Park – Families Past and Present - A fantastic opportunity for families old and new to meet up; planned to run once a month
Family Night at the Red Lion - Towards the end of term, ie. mid-July, probably on a Wednesday
World Cup Tournament - Friday 27 June at Brightwell School, with a big input by the senior class, Discovery
Howl at the Moon Campout - Date TBC, possibly on a Saturday night during the summer holiday
Summer Fair and End of Year Party -Thursday 17 July at Brightwell School – a fantastic send off for the year 6 children
26 Mile Sponsored Walk - Saturday 27 September - walk the entire distance or just do legs of it.
We always need volunteers to help run these events. These volunteers are often parents and other people with affiliations to the school, but we are appealing now to the villagers of Brightwell to ask if anyone can spare some time to help with any of the events. Even if you cannot help on the day, any skills or expertise or equipment you can help us with would be hugely appreciated.
Please do get in touch if you can spare us some of your time. We need the help of local people to make these events the success they have the potential to be. Please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org if you can help or if you have any questions about the forthcoming events or FOBS itself. Thank you Brightwell for all your support!!
