Friends of Bishop's Waltham Junior School (FoBS)
- FOBS is the Bishop's Waltham Junior School Parent Teacher Association.
- All parents with children attending at BWJS automatically become members of FOBS.
- The FOBS Committee is elected annually at the Autumn AGM.
- We also have a list of regular FOBS helpers who, although not on the committee, help out at the events we run.
Who are FOBS?
FOBS is run by a committee of volunteer parents, as well as a teacher representative and our Headteacher.
Many hours of organisation goes
What do FOBS do?
Our main role is to fundraise in order to enhance the provision and educational experience for all pupils.
As per our
- Develop more extended relationships between the staff, parents and others attending it.
- Engage in activities which support the school and advance the education of the pupils attending it.
- Provide and assist in the provision of such facilities or items for education at the school (not provided by statutory funds) as the Committee in consultation with the Governing Body shall from time to time determine.
We fundraise each year by running events such as a Fireworks Night, a Christmas Fayre, Community Film Nights, Quiz Night, Ice-Cream Fridays, Summer BBQ, School Disco and other family and community social events.
We aim to use any money we raise within the school year so all children who attend BWJS benefit from the money raised.
Money we have raised in recent times has been used to fund after school sports clubs, purchase computers for the children, painting playground markings, purchasing Year 6 keepsake boxes, replanting and repairing the school vegetable and flower garden, £1000 worth of library books, badges for WorldClass and Great Plant Hunt clubs, purchasing digital cameras for each year groups, set, helping with the school pool refurbishment, purchasing class sets of reading books - and lots more.
