Joining the PTA can seem

a) tragic

b) sad

c) dangerous

But at Downs, just like with the rest of the school, we are not like other PTAs. Our main aim is to have a laugh and help the school. There are no cliques, no meanness and no leaving anyone in the lurch with things they can’t do. Three years goes SO fast, believe us. The time to help is now.

The Summer Fair is coming up and we’d love reception parents to shadow FODIS people who are leaving FODIS in September. We have all the info, we have all the knowledge, we need some new people to pick up the mantle.

Why get involved? Two reasons: First the children love their parents/carers/grandparents helping out. Second: The school benefits so much from the community vibe that FODIS helps bring. We’re looking in particular for:

  1. someone who wants to learn social media tools (I am self taught, can you tell:) )
  2. A graphic or artistic person who can do posters from Sept 2017 (full brief given, only 5 required)
  3. Someone who likes shopping that can bargain hunt for all the prizes that are required at the fair

All fun jobs see!

If you want to get stuck in then mail mailto: volunteer@fodis.org.uk or rock up to a meeting, they will be held on the first Weds of each month in the Open House pub.

FODIS MEETING DATES:
Weds 5th April.
Weds 3rd May
Weds 3rd June
MONDAY 3rd July (Y2 Leavers making meeting)

Do you want to see if we are worth the effort – well here are our LOVELY faces.

(hmmmm maybe I should have a haircut)

Thanks to everyone that helped, made cakes and came along to the Winter Fair on the 4th Dec. £2700 was raised for the school! Fantastic. More importantly everyone seemed to have a great time.
