FOSLSS (PTA)

Friends of St. Luke's School Sway (FOSLSS)

The ONLY way these wonderful events can happen is because of YOU. A huge 'thank you' to everyone who has helped us so far.

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.

100 Club

The '100 Club' is an effortless way to fundraise for our children. Grandparents and other family members can join too.  You pay £2.00 via direct debit every month into the '100 club' bank account and 50% of the money raised goes to FOSLSS and 50% goes into a prize pot.  Each term, a draw takes place in assembly and the money in the prize pot is split between 1st, 2nd and 3rd prizes. 

 

Joining the '100 Club' is simple.  Just ask at the school office for a form.  We will then allocate you a numbered ticket and this is ten entered into the termly draw and you will be in with a chance of winning one of the cash prizes.

We are also aiming to fundraise to buy a new or replacement minibus when our existing minibus comes to its end of life! We currently have a balance of £4000 but will need approximately £15,000 for another minibus. As a result of having a minibus, children in school are able to attend sporting events and other extra curricular activities.
