I recently had the opportunity to join the Friends of Church Langton School meeting to plan the activities for the year ahead. It is exciting to think ahead to the events and activities that we can now prepare and I thought was an opportunity to reflect on the contribution that FOCLS make to our school.
All of those involved in FOCLS are volunteers who give up their time to provide experiences for the children and families at our school and to raise funds to extend the resources and provision we have at Church Langton.
Over the past year we have had funding from FOCLS for:
Our sports flag to be used at sports days and other events
New PE equipment which is used by pupils across the school in lessons and clubs.
The year 6 residential trip for 2021 was subsidised by FOCLS to reduce the cost to parents when we were able to organise the trip with limited notice.
Reading books have been purchased for across the school and are being enjoyed by pupils of all ages.
We are also due to a receive a substantial donation to the cost of the new classroom from FOCLS.
Despite the challenges of Covid, in the last year FOCLS have also run fantastic Christmas and Summer Fun Days for the pupils, organised activities such as the Church Langton Tea towel and supported events such as Open Morning.
On behalf of the staff, pupils, governors and parents we would like to thanks those who have been involved with FOCLS over the past year and encourage all of our community to contribute to the charity in the year ahead.
