Friends of Sutton (in the Isle) School, otherwise known as FOSS, are a group of parents, teachers and friends who have formed a committee to raise funds for school equipment to enhance the children’s education and to improve the school’s environment. We also aim to promote and foster good relationships within the community. We are a Registered Charity.
Over the years we have helped to provide the school library with books and furnishings, contributed to the ICT suite and replaced the adventure playground. More recently we have raised funds to subsidise trips for all the year groups, provide reading books, maths resources and playground equipment.
Every year we hold a Summer Fete, which has become a major community event. Our other big fundraiser is the Christmas Bazaar where the children are given a unique opportunity to purchase family gifts. Other events over the last year have included Children’s Discos, Bingo, Christmas Shopping Evening and the popular ‘Cake Breaks’.
To enable FOSS to continue fundraising we need new members with fresh ideas and also willing helpers for events. If you would like to become involved in any way, big or small, or would like to know more about our friendly group, please speak to any of the current members of FOSS.
