FoLS

You are here: 

Friends of Langrish School, aka FoLS - Who are we?

We are a small group of enthusiastic parents who volunteer our time to raise money to enhance the school’s resources, support with the costs of trips, and external groups to run workshops in the school.

Meet the team

Co-Chairs:   Lisa Lavan, Rhian Strothers and Kate Wighton

Co-Treasurers: Clare Underwood and Anna Howard

Committee Members:  Tom Dominey, Debbie Pye, Joanne Lilley, Sam Head, Daisy Newman, Caroline Piper, Emilia Holland & Melanie Downham

 
 
 
 
 
 
We have charity status and have a committee of 13 who are elected at the Annual General Meeting. This is our first year, which is daunting but exciting; we are all enthusiastic and there is a real sense of being “in it together” which is great! 
 
What FoLS have previously funded …
 
With the support of our generous parents, FoLS was able to have funded, amongst other things:
  • Forest School resources for the whole school to use
  • ipads
  • our new stage, which has already been used for infant nativities, class assemblies and musicals 
  • a writing shed for Year R (including spiders!) 
  • new picnic tables to furnish the new plaza area
  • visit from the Life Bus
  • balance bikes for Year R.
Next stage of funding is for… the building of a bike and scooter shelter and STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths) area within the next phase of building work.  This will be aimed at creating an area for all ages of pupils in the school to explore their creativity and develop more STEM learning activities. 
 
How can you get involved with FoLS?
 
Any help or support you could give - either on an ongoing or adhoc/event basis - would be enormously appreciated.
If you think you might be able to contribute in any way, be it through skills/talents/connections, then please let us know.
We so appreciate all of your donations and support-  all of the money will benefit our school and our children, so please help if you can.
 
Updates on all events will be sent out via school as well as updated on your individual year FB pages so please keep a look out for those.
If you want to find out any more about FoLS then please contact the school office, leave us a note in the orange FoLS box file in the school reception, email us on Folslangrishschool@gmail.com or feel free to just grab any of us at the school gates.
 
Thanks 
The FoLS Team
