FOSJ & School Fundraising
How to get involved
We welcome anyone who can help a little or a lot, either at events or in preparation for them. We know that everyone is busy and attending meetings is not always possible so we have lots of behind the scenes jobs which are just as important such as gathering prizes for our events. Please let us know if you are able to help in any way. You can contact us through our FaceBook Page www.facebook.com/fosjstjosephsleigh or leave your details at the school office and we will contact you.
We are the Parent/Teacher Association for St Joseph's Catholic Primary School. Our aim is to raise money to help school to buy extra things to benefit all our children's such as:
IT, gym and play equipment, sports team kits etc. So far, our fundraising has helped purchase classroom touch screens, iPads, the reception class canopy, screen, lighting & sound equipment, Mathletics licence, Numicon & smaller items such as football, netball and rugby kits and outdoor clothing.
If any parents/carers have links to banks or community projects who offer match funding or have links to businesses who may be willing to donate raffle prizes, vouchers etc. big or small - please do let us know!
Please visit our Facebook page www.facebook.com/fosjstjosephsleigh where we post details of upcoming events, dates for your school diary, photos from events etc. to stay up to date on what is coming next.
