“The Friends of Diptford School (FODS) is a fundraising group registered with the Charities Commission, which organises events and activities to raise much needed additional resources for the school, for the benefit of the children. Any parent of a child at Diptford School or Pre-School or any member of the Diptford community can be a member of FODS. We have our own website and e-mail updates which we encourage interested parties to sign up to for e-mail updates about what’s happening,what we’ve raised, what we have spend money on etc. Also we have a closed google group for diptford parents so you can ask around to see if anyone has some second hand jumpers just to get you to the end of the term, or who can babysit or take your child to school for a week whilst you can’t drive or whatever! You do need to sign up seperately for these but it really only takes a minute so please do that and join our community.
Take a look at our website for minutes of meetings and more details http://friendsofdiptfordschool.wordpress.com.
The current FODS committee office holders are:
Chair: Laura Bell
Secretary: Alison Lyon
Treasurer: Roger Knight
and we are all parents of current school children. You do not need to be a committee member to attend any FODS meeting and any support would be greatly appreciated. The meetings are held straight after school or later on in the evening so hopefully the timings of some of the meetings will suit you. Watch out for the odd coffee morning, lunch trip or evening out.”
