PaFoS Newsletter - January 2018

For those of you who don’t know PaFoS is Shaw Primary School’s PTA and our main aim, as well as helping the children and parents to have lots of fun, is to raise valuable funds for our school.

Wishing everyone a very Happy New Year and we hope 2018 has got off to a great start for you all.

We would like to introduce the new PaFoS team appointed late last year:

Alison Foster (Chair), Sally Warner (Secretary), Craig Murray (Treasurer), Lecia Watts, Rachel Duddridge, Amanda Nash, Sarah Hardwidge, Becky Bignell, & Lorna Carroll.  Pics on Facebook page coming soon!

The former PaFoS team & PAL’s did the most amazing job over the past two years. A major highlight is the funding of the new shelter in the school grounds. I think everyone can agree that the shelter is such brilliant achievement for the school, students, and the community.

A huge thank you from everyone! 

It is now onto PaFoS’s next big project, which is to help raise vital and important funds towards the ‘School Library Refurbishment’.

The library needs a major upgrade of its space including the bookshelves and furniture. It should be an inviting place to encourage the children to form a love of the area as much as a love of books. Reading is a crucial element of our children’s education and we look forward to assisting the teachers and school with achieving fantastic results!

The Christmas Fayre kicked things off to a flying start, it was a fantastic afternoon and raised very close to £1600. We would like to say a massive THANK YOU to everyone who helped support this event.

Let’s not forget the Carol singing at Leekes and Lowden Garden Centre which raised £156.  Such generosity was shown by customers and both venues for allowing us to sing.  A big thank you to those parents, carers and pupils who joined us to spread some festive cheer.

Last but not least, the introduction of easyfundraising.org.uk which has so far raised over £100 for the school!  If you haven’t already, please consider signing up:

Cause: ‘Shaw C of E Primary School - Shaw’ and then go on-line shopping!  It is so easy! https://www.easyfundraising.org.uk/
