Friends of Brackenfield
Who are they?
The Friends of Brackenfield School (FOBS) are a committee of parents and friends of the School who organise events and work to raise funds throughout the year. These are largely social events and fun activities for both parents and pupils, eg Bonfire Night, Easter Egg Hunt etc. All money raised is used to fund projects that benefit children in the School.
In November FOBS held their Bonfire Night celebration on the sports field. A wonderful range of guys are produced for the night, and pumpkins are carved, decorated and used to light the route to the field.
In December the parents provide something special for the children throughout the school. They also run a highly enjoyable Christmas Fair, with a very important guest.
In Easter the infamous bunny leaves a trail of hidden eggs.
RagBags clothes recycling is one of our great fundraisers so don't throw away any old clothes just yet.
Each year FOBS hold a quiz night with fish & chip supper, which was a lovely evening with light hearted banter between teams.
The final event of the school year is the Summer Fair in June. There are lots of particularly popular attractions and stalls.
Joining FOBS is a great way for parents to join in with school life.
