Friends of SIJS
FOSIJS is a parent and carer group established with the aim of raising additional funds for school to further improve provision and the learning environment at SIJS. We work closely with Mr Allcock and with the Pupil Council in particular to identify additional funding opportunities. Our current projects, driven by the pupils themselves are:
- Garden equipment for the allotment and biodome
- An outdoor climbing wall
- A cross country and athletics kit for pupils representing school
Fundraising events come in all shapes and sizes. In the recent past FOSIJS held a hugely successful ‘Auction of Promises’ at which a staggering £2000 was raised! Not only that, in the summer term FOSIJS sold refreshments at the year 5 and 6 sports day as well as at the end of term disco.
Levels of parent and carer involvement with FOSIJS vary considerably depending on circumstances: from an hour selling drinks at the disco or baking a cake for the sports day refreshment stall to the strategic masterminding of the auction of promises itself. We value and welcome all contributions.
Future events will be regularly signposted here, in school newsletters and on ‘Sijs Learning’ on Facebook. If you are able to offer support and would like to be involved with FOSIJS please let Mrs Prescott know in the school office, or complete the contact form HERE which will be passed on to us to be held on our database.
We very much look forward to working together with you in the future.
