About FOSS

foss_logoHello and Welcome to FOSS – Friends of Slimbridge School

FOSS is a group of parents whose primary aim is to raise funds for the school and provide a range of fun extracurricular activities and events for pupils and their families.

Our trustees nominated in our last AGM are:

  • Chairperson – Lydia Telka
  • Vice Chairperson- Rosie Cullimore
  • Secretary – Sam Hill
  • Treasurer- Nikki Tarr

We also have lots of general committee members who have offered to volunteer and help out throughout the year at different events and fundraisers! If you would like to offer support to FOSS or have any fundraising ideas or you feel you have something to offer then please do get in touch with one of us! I promise you do not have to commit to anything but as the saying goes ‘many hands make light work’!

We have many amazing events planned this year and we are especially excited that a CIRCUS is coming to Slimbridge! This is guaranteed to be a great afternoon for all, we would LOVE to see as many as you there as possible, please bring friends, families and anyone else along to this amazing event! You can book your tickets here: https://www.pta-events.co.uk/foss-events

Since the new committee was elected in September last year, we have all been very excited to raise as much money as possible for our wonderful school. So far, we have raised nearly £12,000 from fundraisers and grants that we have received!

We have introduced ‘Treat Fridays’ which we hope to hold once a month after school. These have been a huge hit with the children (and parents) and they have made great fundraisers too! Treats we have done so far include; sweet cones, popcorn, Krispy Kreme Doughnuts, cake sales and yummy fruit pots! Please let us know if you have any ideas for our upcoming fundraisers, we’d love to hear from you.
