Friends of St. Oswald’s School

Welcome to the Friends of St. Oswald’s School page!

We are a registered charity set up to organise fundraising events to support St. Oswald’s V A School.  All parents of the children at the school can come along to meetings which are generally every half term and are always informal and fun.  They are normally alternated between 3.15pm and 7.30pm meetings.

Our main purpose is to raise money to provide additional facilities or equipment in order to support the school to benefit all pupils, and advance their education and social development.

Our main fundraising events planned and ongoing are:

  • Summer Fete

  • Welcome back to school sporting afternoon

  • Carols around the tree

  • School disco

  • 100 club

  • Bags to school

However, we also organise other events throughout the year.  Activities that we have funded in the past include:

  • Trips

  • IT Equipment for classes

  • Playground Markings

  • Sports kits

  • Outdoor play areas

  • Pond and polytunnel reconstruction

We work in close partnership with the school to identify those areas which will be of most benefit and in the future, we are likely to be allocating funding to support the following initiatives:

  • Developing learning zones outside the classroom

  • Reducing costs of activities/trips

Current Committee members are:

  • Chairperson – Kate Torok

  • Secretary – Emma Beynon

  • Treasurer – Lisa Jenkins

  • Vice Chairperson – Adele Stone
