Friends of Great Waltham School (FOGWS)

The aim of  FOGWS (Friends of Great Waltham) is to help raise funds to provide educational and play equipment for the children of Great Waltham School. We do this by organising a variety of fundraising events such as Fetes, Film Nights, Discos etc. FOGWS is a registered charity and has an elected committee, who with the help of all the other parents within the school, organise these events.

We have two main fundraising events every year which are the Christmas Bazaar and our Summer Fete.  These two events aim to provide happy memories for all the family to go away with, plus raise much needed funding for the school.

The money raised by these events helps to purchase items that the school would not normally be able to purchase, such as additional library books, picnic benches and wet play activities.

All parents automatically become members of FOGWS when their children join the School, however if you would like to take a more active role please pop into reception and pick up a 'volunteer form'.  By completing this form it allows us to contact you when events are on the horizon and ask for some of your valued time.  It may be just 20 minutes serving teas and coffees, but all help is very much appreciated by us and the children.

Any suggestions for future events are also much appreciated and should be placed in the envelope provided on the FOGWS board in reception.
