HELLO & WELCOME FROM…
FOWHS (Friends of Welcombe Hills School)
The FOWHS team are: Sarah Oldrey & Ren Harris.
We both have children in the school and understand how precious time is - but FOWHS needs your help and support!
What do FOWHS fund?
- FOWHS currently donate at least £5,000 a year to WHASPS. If we don’t make this contribution every year WHASPS would need to charge more. The cost to run WHASPS is currently between £10,000-£12,000.
- We give every child a Christmas experience every year. This cost was £1800 last year.
- We have helped fund enhanced learning activities for a number of our children (i.e. Bamboozle)
- We have helped fund workshops for a number of parents/carers (i.e sensory workshop)
- We are also trying to help raise funds for the new secondary playground, which will be done in phases. Phase 1 =£52,785 Phase 2 =£25,785. Phase 3=£28,200.
