Friends of Almond Hill (FOAH) and Fundraising
We really need your support to keep Friends of Almond Hill going! If you are willing to help organise events for our children to help raise funds for the school, please let the office know! Even if you only have a small amount of time to offer, we would love to hear from you. Over the years, our parents have supported many fun events for the children and FOAH have paid for resources and educational activities which we are not able to provide from our budget. Thank you very much in advance. Any help is always so greatly appreciated.
Friends of Almond Hill are a dedicated group of parents who organise fund raising and fun events for our pupils and parents.
We view all parents and carers as members and welcome support in any way, big or small. FOAH are keen to organise events that reflect the interests of pupils as well as parents and carers!
FOAH meet each half term. Meetings are open to all parents/carers. FOAH keep you well informed of planned activities through their newsletters and welcome your ideas. Minutes for previous meetings can be found at the bottom of this page.
