Welcome to the FOES
For parents who are new to the school, and as a reminder to everyone, the FOES (Friends of Etchingham School) organises FUN fund raising events to enable the school to purchase items and contribute to projects not covered by the school budget. These can either be large or small items - for example, in 2006 so far, the FOES have bought combination TV/Video sets, cameras and paid for Carol Havard from Art Techniques to come and work with the children for a day.
Other monies raised will be allocated to items requested by staff and pupils and the list of items purchased will be published on this website as well as in the regular FOES Newsletter.
All parents and staff are automatically members of the FOES however we are organised by a Committee which meets usually once a month to plan and arrange events (with more frequent meetings prior to events) and are supported by many parents and staff who offer their time to assist by helping at events in a variety of ways.
If you are interested in either joining the committee or adding your name to the contact list of helpers - to facilitate our organisation of events - then please either come along to the AGM or drop your contact details (name/phone no/e-mail address) in the FOES box by the main entrance.
