Friends of The Avenue School (FOTAS)
Friends of The Avenue School (FOTAS) is a small dedicated fundraising team comprising of parents and carers whose children attend our school and staff. We organise fun activities within school for the children and their families. All of these events help raise extra funds to pay for a whole range of equipment and experiences to enhance the children’s educational experience.
FOTAS organise events throughout the year such as popcorn nights, Christmas, Easter and Summer Raffles, cake stalls and so much more. They are always glad of people to help them with organising these events as well as setting up and packing away. If you are interested in becoming a part of the team, please speak to the office. FOTAS annually fundraise to purchase the Year 2 leaving presents and subsidise all year group trips, the remaining money raised is spent in different ways but our priority is always to enhance the educational and recreational facilities for our children.
However much time you can offer to FOTAS we will be very pleased to welcome you!
September 2021- August 2022
Thank you to the generosity of parents/carers, staff and other members of our school community who have helped FOTAS, raised over £3,100 since September. We have purchased our lovely new story telling chair for our library, the memorial bench for Mrs Thomas, hundreds of non-fiction books for our library and purchased a book for every child on World Book Day. FOTAS have also purchased a commemorative bookmark for the Queen's Platinum Jubilee for every child, subsidised all year group trips and donated Year 2 leaver books. #fundraising #PTA
