The AGM for Friends of Friars Grove Primary School (our PTA) will be held Wednesday 5th October 2016@ 3.15pm in the school hall.
For those who are new to the school, Friends of Friar's Grove (FoFG) is the Parent Teachers Association that raises funds which helps make the children's time at our school more enjoyable. Each year we are keen to welcome new parents /guardians on board – we can only run with your support. After 10 years I am resigning as Chair of the Committee. After a similar period Karen Cameron (ex Treasurer ) is also standing down as are Kirsty Bennett (secretary) and Rachel Saunders. Jon Enefer will, if re-elected continue as Treasurer.
It is therefore, very much over to a new committee to set the way forward and determine, in discussion with the school, the events to be held and how they will be run. Members of the old committee will still be on hand for advice but it will be an exciting time to get involved and work with a new committee.
If you would like to find out more please come along to our AGM. Don't worry – simply by turning up you won't be committing yourself to help. Attending the event gives you an opportunity, if you wish, to contribute suggestions for future activities.
Friends of Friars Grove Schools (FoFGS) is a registered charity - and certain procedures need to be followed at AGM's including election of committee and confirming which banks will be used etc. Committee members will become trustees of FoFGS. A copy of the constitution can be found on the school website.
Finally I would like to thank all committee members past and present for their support, it's been fun. But the biggest thank you of all goes to all the parents / teachers who have helped out or simply come along and spent their hard earned money.
