FOWI Update July 2019
Dear Parents, Teachers, Children and Friends,
At the beginning of this academic year FOWI set a target to raise a minimum of £20,000 for the school. These funds were be used towards purchasing new items for the children to use. This year we have funded many new things including a felt workshop, new iPads and laptops, mathematics resources, new furniture for the library and the classrooms, new gardens for the classrooms, playground resources, sheds for the early years, sensory equipment, a defibrillator and cabinet and more story sacks for Nursery.
Since September, FOWI have held a number of events, that have helped us raise money whilst having fun, with lots of people getting involved. This year’s events have included: cake and uniform sales, bags to school, the children’s Christmas cards, the festive fair, the pantomime and the letters to Santa, a film afternoon, a ceilidh, an Easter egg hunt, the May fair, a bingo night, Wheatfest, various discos for the children, ice lolly Fridays and most recently break the rules day.
FOWI are pleased to say we have raised over £21,000. This would not be possible without the help of all the staff, the governors, the parents and sponsors of the school. Not forgetting the continued help, support and dedicated work of the FOWI committee and its friends – THANK YOU TO YOU ALL!
If you would like to get involved with FOWI or share your ideas, we would love to hear from you. Email us on: firstname.lastname@example.org

Cake and Uniform Sale
Once your child joins Wheatfields Infants’ and Nursery School, you automatically become a member of the Friends of Wheatfields Infants’ (FOWI), a charitable organization that arranges events, enabling parents to socialise and get to know each other, whilst raising money for the school. FOWI is run by parent volunteers and always need help. If you can spare a little bit of time to not only support the events but also help in organising them!! Bigger events such as the Frost Fair or the Summer Jamboree are organised alongside smaller events such as cake and uniform sales or a children’s disco. We also host several social evening events for parents.
