Our school has many fundraising initiatives. Some of these raise extra funds for our school and others support charities, both national and international
FRIENDS OF SOUTH HARRINGAY
Our Parents and Staff Association is known as The Friends of South Harringay (FOSH). On joining the school you automatically become a member of our organisation.
We are run by volunteers and we rely on the ideas, skills, help and time of people like you to make things happen.
We are a registered charity and have a committee who meet regularly. Our meetings include an AGM, which all parents and staff are welcome to attend. Our main purpose is to raise funds to support the school, as well as promoting opportunities for parents, carers and staff to come together.
The main purpose of the FOSH is to raise funds to the school to enable them to do projects that they wouldn’t normally be able to fund or prioritise.
Here are some things that we have funded in the past:
Greenery and a gazebo structure in the Junior playground
Nursery playground equipment
The Bike and Scooter Park
The ‘Podley’ play equipment for both Infants and Juniors
Anti-pollution ivy and green coverage around the playgrounds
We have committed to funding these projects in the future:
Art and Design Room
We have a successful programme across the whole school year ensuring each year group has at least one dedicated special event – usually a disco or a movie night as well as events that everyone can attend such as bake sales. We also hold annual events including a Christmas adventure trail, scoot-a-thon, quiz nights for parents and staff and of course the summer fair.
If you want to donate to us whilst we are not running events there are a number of way you can do this.
You can donate or set up a standing order for donations at Golden Giving
