Friends of Bredhurst

This is a group run by parents of children in the school who fundraise to provide money which directly enhances the pupils educational provision.  The FOBS support the school in purchasing new equipment and helping to maintain the swimming pool amongst many other things.

The main yearly fund raising events are Pumpkin Morning in October and May Day in May. These events are very well supported by all parents, staff, governors and the local community.

 

Any volunteers to join this team will be gratefully received.

CHAIRMAN’S REPORT

2018-2019

Well another school year has passed us by in a flash! But we have had another amazing fund raising year for our lovely school. Raising much needed funds towards school trips including the end of year trips to Folkestone & Southend, taking the whole school to see the Panto in Maidstone, netball bibs & balls, Maths Whizz. F.O.B.S have also added this year a donation of £10 per Year 6 child towards a Leavers sweatshirt, which the children were very proud to wear at every available opportunity! So this will continue with this year’s Year 6 and hopefully for many, many years to come along with their Leavers bibles.

Our Pumpkin Morning, Firework Extravaganza & May Day events were all very successful, and all 3 events had extremely high attendance and support from both Parents and the Public alike, raising a lot of funds for F.O.B.S for us to then be able to pass onto school for all the Children to benefit from.

We are so lucky to have such dedicated members of F.O.B.S who are always there at every event that the school holds, and events we host too. Some of which are now Year 6 Parents including myself, so this will be our last year at Bredhurst! I would like to say a huge thank you to you all, I couldn’t do this without your hard work & support… Enjoy your last year everyone! This means lots of these Parents positions will need to be taken over by new candidates. If you feel that you would like to do this then please feel free to speak to either Karen Shepherd or myself. We would also like you to come along to any of the F.O.B.S meetings which are held at school… ‘As many hands make light work’. Times & dates of meetings are advertised in our noticeboard just inside the school gate…. Look forward to seeing you!

If I am re-elected as Chairman for 2019/20 this will be my final year and I will be standing down from July 2020. I would like to say a HUGE thank you to Karen for her support as Vice Chairman., I really couldn’t do everything we do without you a long side me. You’re a star! We also are sadly saying Goodbye and a huge thank you to Ash Smith our current Treasurer who stood down at the end of July 2019, and we are also looking for the position of Secretary as Pat Hewitt is finding it very hard to run all the school finances & hold the position of Secretary too, again if this is something you would like to take on please speak to either Myself, Karen Shepherd or leave a message at the school office for us.

So lets hope that 2019/2020 is another successful academic year for F.O.B.S raising lots of money for our Children, and their amazing little school….. Go team Bredhurst!

With kindest regards

Mrs Jayne Sullivan – Chairman of Friends of Bredhurst School
