FOBs

Friends of Bierton School (FOBS)

We would like to extend a warm welcome to you and your child. When your child joins Bierton, you as parents are welcome to become members of the association that is FOBS. The main aims of the association are to raise additional funds for the school and to sponsor special events for the children to provide extra facilities for the school. Over the last six years we have fortunate enough to have had over £50,000 raised through the hard work of all those involved, both previously and currently.

Fundraising is generated through a variety of enjoyable events and schemes including organising our Tuck Shop, May Fayre, Bingo, Discos, Quiz nights and Cine Nights to name but a few!

Regular updates are sent out via the half termly FOBS newsletter which is posted onto this site to keep you all informed of all the meetings and events as organized by FOBS.

We hope you will be able to support us as we are working together with you and the school to provide the best for all of our children.

We are always on the lookout for volunteers, any time you have will be greatly appreciated. If you fee you can volunteer for anything we would love to hear from you. Please leave your name, your child’s name and class and contact details at the school office or email emmajcable@hotmail.com.

 

Committee Members

Kate Woodfruff - Chair

Hi, I’m Kate it will be my second year as Chair of FOBS. I have Ashley in Year 6.

I am very excited about the new challenge ahead. We have lots of great events that we are all starting to organise for the rest of 2016 and the start of 2017.

Normally found on the front playground in the afternoons, please come & say hello!

I have a fab team behind me and I know we are all aiming for the same result, ‘raising money for the children of Bierton School’. I thank you all for the support so far.

Emma Arnold - Vice Chair

Hi Everyone! Well, another year rolls around. This year we already have a number of great events planned that we hope you will enjoy.

I am mum of Freya in Cherry, one of the merry band of blondies in that class, and I have Lucy the Cockerpoo who you may see me walking at stupid o’clock every day around the fields behind Bierton, so please feel free to say hi (or come with me if you are a fellow dog walker).

I look forward to meeting you all and working again for another year to support our brilliant school.

Faith Beer - Treasurer

Hi, I’m Faith, mum of Jonah (now at secondary school and Micah (year 4). This is my second year on the committee and FOBS Treasurer.

In my other life I am a teacher so I am able to see the benefits of FOBS from both a parent and schools perspective.

It’s great to be part of something that benefits all of our children, as they are the ones who gain from the money FOBS raises.

Emma Cable - Secretary

Another year of fundraising ahead! I have been on the committee for many years and this is my third year as FOBS Secretary, I am nearing the end of my time as a Bierton Mum. I have two kiddies Lottie (at Cottesloe) and Alex in year 5.

I try to stay in the background of FOBS, sending lots of emails. I help with various aspects of the committees fundraising activities.

I love to see what we raise put to use around the school; the staging and sound system, sports kits for the teams representing the school, forest schools cabin and providing coaches for each child to attend a school trip.
