The Friends of Horsmonden Primary Academy (FoHPS)
All parents and guardians of children who attend our school are automatically members of the FoHPS or Friends Association, Colin Seal is currently the Acting Chair and Katy Arscott is treasurer. Sarah Castro-Edwards is the secretary.
FoHPS is run by a committee made up of teachers and parents who organise a variety of events throughout the school year. The events are split in to two broad categories – those whose main aim is to raise funds to provide “those little extras” which help to enhance our children’s experiences at school, and those whose main aim is for the children to have fun. The committee is ably helped by class representatives – a familiar and friendly face for all the parents, helping to ensure that parents’ views and concerns are passed on to the committee.
Our most recent fundraising has directly benefited our children by purchasing a new set of playground equipment with safety surfacing underneath, which is due to be installed in the very near future.
In all the events carried out we rely on an immense amount of support from all parents – and it is this valuable support which has helped to make our events such a success in the past.
If you are interested in getting more involved with FoHPS, please speak with your class rep or with any member of the committee – we are always ready to welcome new members. Or if you have a great fund-raising idea which you’d like to pass on – please email us firstname.lastname@example.org or visit our website www.fohps.btck.co.uk!
