Friends of Gibside School
Welcome to FOGS (Friends of Gibside School), the school PTA (Parent and Teacher Association).
We are a voluntary group who meet once a month to support raising funds for the school. Over the last few years we have raised in excess of £10,000 which has supported crucial therapy work and many enjoyable activities for the children.
We are a registered charity, enabling us to access even more funding and grants, which has added to the ways we can help the school.
At the moment our focus is to raise funds to purchase a new activity room for the children to learn in. It is FOGS aim to achieve this by mid 2016.
We are constantly looking for new, fresh ideas as a way of raising funds for the school. Past events and ideas include; School fair, Clairvoyant night, Clothes collections, Phone collections, Bag packs and selling Easter eggs.
We are always looking for new members. If you are interested in coming along, please DO; whether to listen or to help with ideas, we always believe the more the merrier.
We meet on the last Friday of each month at 9.30am for no more than an hour. Our meetings are relaxed and always involve a cup of tea and biscuits!!!
