Hi everyone,
Like a phoenix rising from the flames, our resurrected FOBS has hit it’s first birthday!
Little did we know that a kick-off meeting, on a July summer’s evening at the Colney Fox, would result in an income in excess of £25,000 with circa £18,000 profit.  
It’s been a wonderful whirlwind of a year – we couldn’t have done it without a strong committee, passionate volunteers, fabulous children and supportive parents/carers and staff.  Thank you.
This year FOBS has funded:
  • Playground gym equipment (with a service contract)
  • Reading books
  • Coronation bookmarks
  • Y6 Leavers hoodies contribution
  • Reception PE bags
  • Toys and bicycles for Early Years
Ms Lippa, the teachers and the school groups (eco council, forest school, school council, breakfast club, sports teams etc) have been briefed on how to submit requests for FOBS for funding.  We are also having discussions with the school regarding larger projects.  When the heating engineers have finished their work, the builders will resurface the playgrounds.  FOBS will then be excited to get quotes for having the playground painted along with other enrichment playground activities for all year groups.
Here’s all the activities and events that took place:
  • Disco x 3
  • Winter Fair
  • Pantomime
  • Christmas cards & gifts (Cauliflower Cards)
  • Mother’s and Father’s Day sale
  • Circus Sensible and circus skills workshops
  • Face painting workshop
  • School lottery
  • Stickins school uniform labels
  • St Albans marathon marshalling
  • Coronation picnic
  • Legoland
  • Bag2School x 3
  • Coffee and cake mornings (during Bag2School)
  • Summer Fair
  • Big Clean Up x 2
FOBS are bursting with ideas for the new school year ahead.  The fun begins with our Family Mixer BBQ after school on Friday 8th Sept – all school families are welcome.  The more volunteers that we have, the more we can do, so if you would like to join the FOBS team, please drop us a message at  Volunteers can be hands on or help out behind the scenes – we never say no to help… we have A LOT OF FUN.
Lastly we bid a fond farewell the Y6-ers and some of their families that will be leaving Bowmansgreen this week – thank you, goodbye and good luck.
Let’s give our children another brilliant year at Bowmansgreen – happy holidays!
