Friends of the School

The friends of the School (FOS) are entrusted to act as a fundraising body within the School Community. They are a trust to the school with the sole purpose of: 

"...Supporting the School's students, and uniting the school community through the school's vision and strategic plan, by raising funds to contribute to projects and resources in order to improve teaching and learning at Enner Glynn School..."

FOS is the modern day “PTA” a team of parents, caregivers, teachers and our Principal who fundraise and assist our school, children and 

the community in a number of different ways. Our long term goal is to help the school improve our children’s learning environment both 

inside and out. 

With our fundraising we have been able to:

  • Purchase and supply of new playground equipment

  • Help financially to enable parents to attend school camps

  • Purchase uniforms for sport teams and events

  • Supply new furniture to our Modern Learning Environments (new classrooms)

  • Supply new IT – ie: Cromebooks directly into classrooms
     

We are able to bridge the gap in providing  things for our students where school or ministry funding may not be able to. 
 

FOS Fundraising Events

  • Sausage and Milk Days every term

  • Pic's Peanut Butter and Milo Days

  • Biennial Gala/Carnival (every second year)

  • Junior and Senior Discos

  • Helping out at school sporting events

  • Uniform Sales

  • Various other small fundraisers throughout the year

 

Being part of team ensures you get to know a wide range of people in our school, both parents and teachers.

We all have a different skill set and ideas and no one person is lumped “doing it all”, we all spread the load and take into account our personal commitments. You may want to help at a Disco but be unable to help at a Sausage Day, we recognise that and work as a team to all help out where we can. 
 

Any help our FOS can get from our families is hugely appreciated.
 

Thanks  from  the  FOS  team

EGS Cricket Uniforms
New MLE Classroom Equipment

FOS gave a donation to the school to purchase new Cricket Uniforms for the Hardball and Incrediball School Cricket teams. 

The students - as you can see are very proud to wear these great looking sports tees while representing their School.

Upon completion of the new entrant MLE block, FOS contributed $10,000 towards the purchase of new equipment.
MLE - Modern Learning Environments provide a flexible, open learning environment with more access to shared resources and learning.

Rock River with Water Pump

FOS paid for the build and install of the new Rock River water feature and cast iron water pump, which has been a huge hit!
Thank-you to Dick Thomas from Pumps Nelson for donating a new pump! 

New Chromebooks 

FOS supplied an extra six new Chromebooks for classroom learning. 
The students decorated the new Chromebook holder and aptly named it Fossie
