Thank you from the Friends of Eastling School (FOES)
Thank you to everyone who has helped with the FOES fund raising and children’s activities this term, we’ve raised over £600 for the children.
We’ve run some great events for the children this term as well as our fund raisers, including our annual pumpkin decorating competition, the Halloween disco, and our Christmas Shop which is one of the favourite events of the year for both children and helpers.
New for this year, we introduced Festive Fridays on the run up to Christmas. The first Friday you kindly donated items for the Faversham Foodbank. You donated over 120 items which is amazing; below is an email from the Foodbank thanking you all for your generosity. Our second Festive Friday was a competition for the best festive head gear. It was great to see so many children in festive hats and there were some great creations. Well done to the winners.
During the term, we funded the pantomime, Jack & the Beanstalk, that came into school earlier this month, and the Acorns trip to the Reindeer Centre. We are also in discussions with the school regarding trips and treats for Years 1 - 6 in 2022.
If you would like to help FOES with their fund raising and putting on fun activities for the children, either as a member of FOES or as an occasional helping hand for our events, please speak to a member of FOES in the playground or email Katie (email@example.com). We’d love to hear from you.
Finally, we would like to wish you all a happy Christmas and a healthy new year. Hopefully we will all get to spend time with our families this year. We look forward to seeing you all in 2022.
With best wishes, the FOES team.
