Friends of Mengham Infants
Friends of Mengham Infant School
Everyone who has a child, grandchild or a family member who cares for a child in the school can consider themselves a ‘Friend of Mengham Infant School - FOM’. This group of parents/relatives/carers has an interest in the school through their children. The aim of the group is to enhance your child’s time whilst at school and it is your opportunity to get involved while having fun at the same time.
Every year budgets and finances in schools are tested to meet all the needs of the school. The ‘Friends of Mengham' look to work with the school in organising fun activities and to raise funds for those additional extras that make your child’s time at Mengham Infant School extra special.
For example, events during 2017/18 year included: School Discos, Table Top Sale, Christmas Fayre and Christmas Cards, Red Nose Day. Such events have raised funds to go towards the following:
- Supporting school trips, visits or workshops
- High Visibility Jackets for Offsite Activities
- Book Tokens and Prizes
- Supporting the purchase of School Microlibrarian system
We are ALWAYS on the lookout for more volunteers to help with our fundraising events. If you can spare some time please call in to the school office and let them know. Your name and contact details will be passed on to the Chair of the FOMs committee. There is no pressure to attend every FOMs meeting or help at every event, but the more people that can help and volunteer just makes it more manageable to run all the great events we hold and have planned for the future.
Look out for FOMs meeting minutes; letters; reports and pictures from events held on the 'Parents Page' of our school website plus information shared on our school facebook page.
PLEASE NOTE: Our FOMs Annual General Meeting is being held on the 24th September from 4.00-4.30pm. This formal meeting is held to elect a chairperson, vice chairperson, treasurer and secretary for the year. It is also your opportunity to ask questions about the role of FOMs and to register your interest in becoming an active member. Please do try to come along if you can. The fundraising FOMs do throughout the year in support of our school is invaluable.
