Friends of galliard (FOG) PTA
Friends of Galliard
We are fortunate at our school to have FOG, that is and has been an integral part of the school community for many years. In its time the FOG has raised thousands of pounds, which has been spent on equipment and resources to enhance our children’s education experience and the school’s facilities.
FOG is about much more than simply fundraising. FOG exists to provide closer links between home and school and it is an excellent way to bring staff, parents and friends together socially in support of the school, working towards a common goal. It is fun too - just ask any of the Committee members or FOG helpers. Obviously, as in any organisation, we have experienced some challenges but with the continued support of parents and staff, the FOG has always succeeded in its efforts.
All parents and members of the school community are encouraged to get involved, even if they only have a small amount of time available. All families are automatically members of the FOG when their child joins our school.
FOG is extremely conscious of the ethos and diversity of our school, and we try very hard when organising and planning events to respect this. Not all of our events are run as fundraisers. Such as our contributions towards school trips, Christmas Presents for Key Stage 1 and Children’s Designed Tea Towels and Pizza Party for Year 6 are run with the aim of giving the children a good time and as a way of thanking families for their continued support for the FOG.
