Friends of Wooldale
Friends of Wooldale are a fantastic, friendly and hardworking group of parents, staff and friends of the school who organise fundraising events which help the school with the cost of trips, essential equipment and resources.
With school budgets being so tight, the funds we raise really are vital. All the money we raise goes to the fantastic cause of helping to make Wooldale such a great school for our children to attend. In recent years we have contributed to many resources, trips and experiences at the school's request, allowing all the children in the school to benefit.
If you want to help keep Wooldale wonderful contact the office to find out about the next FOW meeting or event and how you can help out. Help is always needed. If you are unable to help then please watch out for notices about FOW events and come along and show your support.
We look forward to seeing you soon.
Next Meeting - Tues, 13th Feb at Kirkroyds
FOW Christmas Shop 2017
At our Christmas Shop pupils can choose from a selection of small gifts for parents, grandparents and carers in secret. The gifts are reasonably priced and ready wrapped so that all they have to do is write a gift tag. Any profits made are used to help school provide extra resources, trips and experiences for pupils.
Review of 2016
Through our fundraising in 2016 the school has been able to provide a new library, extend the conservation work in our outdoor learning area, funded educational trips, topic related workshops and more recently the introduction of the new parents evening system on Teachers 2 Parents which was jointly funded by Wooldale Junior School.
During the festive period, with the support of parents, friends and staff FOW organised a variety of activities and raised the following amounts:-
Christmas Cards = £241.00
Christmas Concert DVD = £95.95
December Disco = £384.24
Christmas Shop = £404.52
Many thanks to all involved for their support and hard work.
Autumn Fair 2016
We raised just over £2600! Brilliant! A huge thank you to all the families who donated items for the Autumn Fair and attended on Saturday. There was a lovely atmosphere and the children seemed to be having lots of fun! Thank you to the committee of the Friends of Wooldale, who worked so hard to ensure the day was successful.
Decorated Cup Competition
Before the Autumn Fair we had a competition in school to decorate a plastic cup filled with suprises. These cups then went into the Cup Tombola at the fair and could be won by anyone who bought a ticket. The winners of the Decorate Cup competition can be seen below. They are amazingly inventive. Can you spot the cup???
