The F.O.B.A. committee organises fund raising activities to support the school and pay for additional resources. They are a dedicated group who are always looking for new recruits to help out with the many and varied activities that take place during the school year. F.O.B.A. have meetings throughout the year and all parents are welcome to attend.

What are we raising money for?
For 2020 we are fundraising for children's Chrome Books, digital camaras for each class, microphones for performances and more books for classrooms.
In 2019 we paid for new books for the school and also a projector for the school hall.
In 2018 we raised money to pay for the netting on our climbing frame in the school playground.
In 2016 FOBA raised the money to resurface the front trim trail play area and install some new toadstool seating.
