FOAS - the Friends of Avening School
We are very fortunate at Avening Primary School to have such an active and well supported Parents’ Association in the form of FOAS. All parents with children at the school are automatically members of FOAS, and people play their part either through an active involvement on the committee or by supporting the many events which FOAS organises. The role of FOAS is to provide the funding for those ‘extras’ which the normal school budget cannot stretch to. Recent contributions have been to help fund our amazing ELSA pod and resources, a climbing frame on the top playground and play equipment for the playground. FOAS also pay for coaches to take children on various trips, supporting us to keep the costs down for all of our families.
The best thing of course is that through our fundraising FOAS also hopes to provide interesting and fun events for everyone to enjoy. The Christmas Market, the infamous Avening Bear Hunt, the Halloween Trail, children's discos and the Quiz Nights have all proved a great success.
If you would like to know more about FOAS, or have any fundraising suggestions then please contact any FOAS member as listed below. Everyone is welcome.
