FRIENDS OF LALEHAM SCHOOL

 

FoLS is Laleham School’s PTA

It exists to provide closer links between home and school and is an excellent way to bring staff, parents and friends together socially and to raise funds to support the children and the school.  All parents are automatically members of FoLS and we would welcome your involvement.  You are welcome to come along to any of our meetings.

FoLS Website

As you are aware during these unprecedented times we have been unable to hold our fairs and sale events. These events are vital for the school to raise much needed funds. Therefore we are pleased to announce the the launch of our new FoLS website!

The website can be found here: www.pta-events.co.uk/friendsoflalehamschool  There will be lots of exciting things to purchase to help raise money for our school, such as pens, notebooks, bags and trump cards.

 

COMING EVENTS in 2020/2021:

We are currently looking at what limited fund raising events can take place in the current climate. Those that are possible will be listed here.

  • Mufti Day - Friday 26th March 2021   In exchange for donations for the Easter Eggstravaganza Raffle. More information on the raffle can be found here.

 

We can’t do it without your help and support!

If you look around the school you will see so much that FoLS have bought or contributed to for the children, including the fantastic library, sound & lighting system in the hall, playground markings and benches, Quiet Garden, Friendship Corner, EYFS garden & playground, books, ipads and computers and the Jubilee and Anniversary Trails.

SECOND HAND UNIFORM:

We hold regular second-hand uniform sales after school in the playground. This is a great opportunity for parents to purchase good quality second-hand uniform at a vastly reduced cost. We usually raise around £500 per year from these sales. If you have any items to donate to the school uniform sales please leave them in the boxes alongside the FoLS shed.
