FOLS Coffee Morning & Recycling - 1 Feb 2019, 8.30am

 

Message from the Chairman   (December 2018)

As the new chair of FOLS, I’d like to thank each and every one of you for your continued support of the committee and the school.  We’ve had a busy autumn term with several coffee mornings, as well as weekly openings of the second-hand uniform shop and a very successful Christmas Fair, brilliantly organized by Kay Hay.

FOLS exists primarily to organize social events for parents and pupils, and in doing so we try to raise a little money to put back into projects at school. Just this term we have bought a sandpit for the Reception students, as well as a locking laptop cabinet for student use in Learning Support. Last year we purchased a new bookcase for the library, and planters for the school. Your hard work and participation in our events makes these donations for our students possible, so THANK YOU! 

 If you haven’t already signed up for Classlist, please do so.  It has become a thriving online community for individual year groups and continues to be the primary venue where we post school activities, notifications of meetings and other information. We hope you have a wonderful holiday and we look forward to seeing you in 2019!

Christmas Fair 2018

Thank you to all who supported the Christmas Fair. We had wonderful performances by the delightful Prep Choir, the stunning senior choir & instrumental group as well as some pazzazz from our Performing Choir.

 

ClassList

FoLS is delighted to inform you that Classlist is up and running with many parents already using the site.  

WHAT IS CLASSLIST?

  • it is a modern parent communication system that can be used across the whole school that replaces the old spreadsheet
  • more secure than Facebook or Whats App
  • your personal details can only be viewed by your class, year group and Classlist parent administrators

HOW USEFUL IS IT?

  • we are very aware that as our children become more independent the opportunity to meet and communicate with other parents becomes more limited
  • there is a section that allows you to create an event (e.g. childrens party, year group or class coffee morning), sell items or simply find that missing sock!)
  • must stress this is a FoLS led initiative and communication regarding school issues will be through the usual channels
  • it gives FoLS a channel to update you about forthcoming events/meetings, to ask for valuable help, new ideas and expertise regarding fund raising events etc. All parents of children at Leehurst Swan are members of FoLS and as such your opinions and support are very important

To to register by going to https://www.classlist.com. Click on the ‘get started tab’, type in Leehurst Swan, fill in your details and watch the short tutorial. For your protection, your account will need to be verified –  once this has been done, you can log in and start using the site.
