Who are the FOTS and what do we do?
FOTS (Friends of Titchfield School) are the parents and relatives of all the children of the school. Anyone can join the committee – we are a friendly group who meet every 4-6 weeks either at school, someone’s home or the pub! We encourage new members and are very open to new ideas.
Through fundraising events, FOTS provide the ‘extras’ to hopefully enrich our children’s experience at school, enhancing their enjoyment and improving their learning environment.
How do FOTS raise money?
FOTS hold regular, varied events throughout the year. These include the infamous Strawberry Fayre and the Advent Fayre. Other events include bingo nights, fashion shows, school discos, barbeques and regular cake sales. Money is also raised regularly through your donations of unwanted clothing and textiles via the ‘Happy School Bag’ scheme. Donations can be deposited on the playground at any time.
In the last few years, FOTS have subsided swimming lessons for KS2 and school trips for all year groups. We have recently purchased playground equipment, netbooks and the online reading scheme ‘Bug club’. Our future projects include sponsoring a ‘buddy bench’ for the playground and our continuing support towards IT at the school including funding for the new website and more IT Equipment.
Most members of the committee are in the playground every day, if you would like to come and have a chat.
