FoSP – Friends of Somerville Primary; is made up of a volunteer group of school parents who convene in the school Community Room fortnightly on a Monday morning at 9.00am. FoSP is always seeking and welcoming new members to come along, on a non-committal basis. This means we understand if you cannot commit to coming along every fortnight and are appreciative of whatever assistance you can provide our dedicated core group of FoSP members. We are always interested in new ideas and are grateful for assistance in organising and carrying out the pre-planned year’s events and fundraisers. In 2019 we have outlined/proposed the following events:
- Funtastic Family Festival
- Meal Deals each term
- Easter raffle
- Mother’s Day Stall
- Colour Explosion Run for Fun
- Election BBQ/Cake Stall
- Father’s Day Stall
- Blokes Brekkie
- Science Show Café
- Bunnings BBQ
- Christmas Raffle
In 2019 we are dedicating all fundraising monies to resurfacing the basketball courts.
Each event takes careful planning, organising and execution on the day, therefore it’s obvious why FoSP is such a valued and integral part of our school community and why we are always very grateful for new faces to come along and contribute any time during the school calendar.
FoSP is a great way to meet new parents, establish new friendships with other school families and it’s a great way of getting to know the students, teachers and staff at our wonderful school.
Please register your Working With Children Check at the office. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to ask our Assistant Principal, Mrs Harvey or our friendly office team.
According to a middle school survey in 2017, the students rated FoSP amongst their 5 favourite things at Somerville Primary School.
We would love you to come along, reap the rewards and enjoy the satisfaction of growing our school together in a united friendly atmosphere. The smiles on the children’s faces during meal deals, discos or watching their chosen Mother’s Day or Father’s Day gifts being wrapped before their eyes is the biggest pay-off of all.
See you at our next meeting or school fund raiser.
