Friends of Norwell School

Friends of Norwell School (AKA FONS) is a committee set up to raise money for, and generally support, Norwell School.

The Autumn Quiz raised £394.00  and the school Harry Potter night raised £258.00. We held a quiz in March which raised just under £300.00.  The winners were Dianne Littlewoods team who will be setting the next quiz (date to be confirmed)

We recently asked the children to design a thank you card, the winner was Amelia Ward who was given a Box of chocolates as a prize and all enties received a lollipop.

The next competion is to design a new FONS  LOGO.

We hold regular meetings to plan events and discuss ways to invest in the School. The last meeting was on Monday the 23rd of April at 7:30pm in the Village hall. All meetings are to be held there from now on and the next will be in June. Date not yet confirmed .

All parents are welcome to attend the meetings and do not have to become committee members if they feel they can not cope with that level of committment.  Any help and ideas are gratefully received.

The Cheap as Chips night on Saturday 19 June was very enjoyable and a great success. Several hundred pounds was raised for the school and everyone seemed to have a very good evening. 

How we are spending money raised

We have also just given a cheque for £5,000.00 to school for the outside classroom area.  We have nominated £3,500.00  for a Touch screen smart board for class one and this has just been purchased.

In December we bought a present for each school and playschool child at Norwell School. Each gift was wrapped and presented by "father Christmas" to the children in the last week of term. We also provided party food for the children's Christmas party and refreshments at the school play.

We also do a monthly prize draw. For ten pounds a year you are given a number (number balls)  each month a number is pulled out and the winner receives £10.00.  We have some spaces at the moment due to children having left etc.  It does not have to be people at the school or with a child at the school - all are welcome.
