FOBS

Friends of Bishopton School

F.O.B.S

 

The ‘Friends of Bishopton School’ organisation is run entirely by a committee of volunteer parents and school staff. We devote our time to raising valuable funds for the school and organising fun events for the pupils and their families.

 

Each year we have a calendar of events including seasonal fayres, termly discos, an end of year ‘hot dog disco’ as well as cake sales and competitions. We provide ice creams for the children at sports day, refreshments for the open day, sports kits for the school teams and we subsidise a Christmas party/jingle ball disco with a gift for each child who attends. We also provide funding for the school to host various theme days throughout the year and supplement their purchasing for equipment and learning materials.

 

We are always looking for new members and new ideas! If you would like further information please contact any of the committee members below, Kathy Clee at the school office or email the FOBS committee at BSFOBS@yahoo.com . Alternatively, you are welcome to attend any of our meetings, please see the school newsletters for forthcoming dates.

We look forward to seeing you at our events and thank you for your support as a Friend of Bishopton School.
