Don’t be shy!! We can never have enough volunteers!!
Read below to find out more about the work of FoNS and how you can get involved.
We are Friends of Nursteed School (FoNS) and are a group of volunteers with children or grandchildren at the school.
What do we do?
We raise additional funds for the school by organising fun activities for the children to participate in for a small fee.
From April 2020 to March 2021, our fundraising opportunities were badly hit due to covid. We still managed to raise £942 through activities such as a mini quiz, Halloween dress up and selling hot chocolate and sweets at Christmas time.
In 2020-21 the funds raised by FoNS meant that an overhead projector could be purchased which is something that all children will benefit from. We also give each class a small donation at Christmas time for the Teachers to spend on their pupils, this can be anything from a board game for the class to an item of stationery for the individual pupil. In non-covid times we subsidise school trips for pupils (£100 per class) and have previously paid for events such as the science dome, school mosaics and artwork on the outside of the school, and supplies for topical school subjects.
For the 2021-22 academic year we have a target to raise £2,400 to buy new picnic tables for the playground.
Our planned fundraising activities for 2021-22 can be found at the top of this page.
