Our PTA works enthusiastically and tirelessly to raise funds for our school and to enhance our children's activities and experiences during their time at the school. The Committee meets regularly to discuss ideas for events to raise money for school improvement priorities. The ONLY way these wonderful events can happen is because of YOU. A huge 'thank you' to everyone who has helped us so far.
Meet our FOSLSS Core Committee Team
Lizzie Bradley - FOSLSS Treasurer & Joint Chair

Our Core Committee is responsible for leading and overseeing FOSLSS. All parents and staff are automatically members of FOSLSS.
So we can continue and indeed grow, the facilities and activities for our children, we are always keen to welcome new faces to help organise the above events and more. We meet around 6 times a year to discuss and arrange events. These are social meetings, usually held in the evenings in the Hare and Hounds or the Silver Hind. Alternatively we meet at the school during the day. Ad hoc meetings also happen to suit you. Future meetings are listed below. All parents are warmly invited to attend; we look forward to seeing you there.
Our next meeting date is on Friday 29th September at 2pm at the school
If you can't attend the meetings but are interested in getting more involved or are able to spare a couple of hours to help with events listed below, the FOSLSS team would love to hear from you.

As a result of having a minibus, children in school are able to attend sporting events and other extra curricular activities.
As highlighted above, FOSLSS are also contributing £2000 to go towards a Celtic roundhouse project this year. All children have been involved in building it. Please visit our Community Pages for more images of the construction process. http://www.st-lukes.hants.sch.uk/celtic-roundhouse-project/
