Many schools have a team of parents who are often known as the PTA (Parent Teacher Association).  At Barkston & Syston CE Primary School we are very lucky to have a wonderful group of parent volunteers who we refer to as FOBS (Friends of Barkston School). 

 

We currently have approximately 15-20 members and we ALWAYS welcome new members to join us.

 

The primary purpose of FOBS is to raise money for the school and this is done in many ways such as:

  • The Christmas Fair
  • The Summer Fair / Barkstonbury Live Music Festival
  • Film Club
  • Ice Cream Friday
  • Cake Raffle
  • School Disco
  • Colouring Competition
  • Non Uniform Days  

 

The money raised from these fundraisers is then used to buy things to enrich the learning of the pupils at the school.  In recent years FOBS have managed to raise enough money to buy:

 

  • Interactive boards for some of the classrooms
  • Ipads, laptops and a laptop storage trolley
  • Online school Library System
  • Picnic benches
  • Shed, playground markings and a mud kitchen for Fawns class
  • A ticket for every child in the school to attend the Pantomime
  • £100 donation to each class - May 2017
  • £1,000 donation to purchase new books - spring 2017
  • Netball and football posts
  • IT Lego coding set
  • Lockers for KS2
  • and much more......

 

We still have more items we would like to purchase for school and with your help we hope to raise enough funds to do this.
