Friends of Finchampstead School Association (FOFSA)
The Friends of Finchampstead School Association (FOFSA) was set up as a registered charity (1070772) nearly 20 years ago to support the school through fundraising and activities for children and adults.
All parents, staff and governors are automatically members of FOFSA, but a small committee is elected each year to manage the affairs of the association, plan events, and liaise with the school to determine the best way to spend the money raised for the benefit of the children.
Our committee is made up of a fabulous group of Mums who take time out to make things happen!
Chair: Adele Baker, Vice Chair: Yasmin Ismail, Secretary: Alison Wilde.
Treasurer and governor: Carolyn Fox.
Members: Jo Frost, Carly Davies - Knight, Hannah Blanco, Sam Lamb, Audra Morgan, Trudi Craig.
Staff: Mrs Vanstone, Mrs Gan, Mrs Nevitt
