Friends of Old Park School
What is FOOPS?
Foops is a group of parents/ carers who meet every Tuesday morning at Old Park School between 9.30 am and 12 noon
What we hope to achieve
As a group we organise events to raise additional funds for Old Park School. In organising these events we hope to provide the children with additional opportunities for social interaction and a chance for parents to get together and socialise.
Any money raise by the events we organise goes back to the children. Examples of this are presents for the children at Christmas, donations towards trips and we also contribute and save for the purchase of the much needed and very much used minibuses so that the children can go out and about.
Extra support and a chance to meet other parents
Foops is not just about fundraising and the children. It is also about giving you the opportunity to come into school, meet other parents, get involved or just have coffee and a chat. There is a wealth of experience and a lot of laughs.
Please feel free to come and join us, we look forward to seeing you.
If you would like further information contact Jane Walker (Chairperson) through the school or on 07734910467
