Maypole Dancing and Morris Dancing at our annual Summer Fete
F.O.G.S. (Friends of Glapthorn School) organise numerous events throughout the year which offer opportunities for children and families to have fun together. They also raise money to be spent on those little extras that add to the pupils’ learning or opportunities.
FOGS have funded the purchase of 20 new computers enabling a continuation of our enviable ratio of one computer per three children. (This is in addition to a bank of i-pads and laptops that are also used regularly by the children.) They have also funded outside lighting at the entrance of school. Thank you! They have fundraised for our School House Development Project which is now a fabulous learning space and to use the garden as an extension to our playground and to Robins' outdoor area.
Two of the longest running events are the Easter Egg Hunt (a huge hit with the children) and the Summer Fete which is a big fundraiser. They also run a wide range of other events, including discos, a Giant Marble Run Build, the Dads' Big Tidy Up and a monthly Film Club.
