FOWSA is a registered Charity and fundraising committee made up of teachers, parents and friends of the children at Woodchurch School. We aim to work with the school to raise money to buy the extras that the school budget would struggle to provide.

Our team is made up of:

Chairman - Maria Baksh
Vice Chair- Leesa Holden
Secretary- Louisa Hyde
Treasurer- Karen Stevens

Our committee is made up of parents and carers of children that attend the school. They work tirelessly to come up with fundraising ideas and support our events.

FOWSA needs you.

We are always looking for volunteers to support FOWSA and the school in any way, so if you want to join the committee, are able to spare some time to help with our events, or have a fund raising idea, please let us know.

You can contact FOWSA by emailing:

FOWSA is only successful as a result of the effort put in by all parents, carers and teachers who support our events.  This academic year we have held fund raising events including:

  • Craft Night
  • The Great Woodchurch Bake Off
  • Film Night

Our next event is  the CHRISTMAS FAIR which will be held at school on Thursday 14th December 2017 from 2.30pm.  Last year's event was hugely successful and thoroughly enjoyed by those who met reindeers, visited Santa's Grotto and had a go at ice skating; this year's event promises to be just as exciting!

Donations to school this academic year.

Over the course of the last year, through the hard work of our volunteers and the kindness and generosity of those attending events, we have been able to fund the replacement of some projectors, purchase new laptops and storage for them, as well as new markings for the playground.

We will be covering the costs of the Christmas crackers and the Christmas gifts for each classroom.

FOWSA also gives around £3500 annually for the coaches for school trips, provides book bags for children in Reception and newspapers for learning purposes.

Another way you could support our children is to sign up with easyfundraising.  Every time you shop online a percentage of what you spend will be donated to FOWSA. It doesn’t cost you a penny but benefits the school. So far we have raised £834.75 through easyfundraising.
