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..."

Join Enner Glynn School – Friends of the School (FOS)
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
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
If you would like to join the FOS team or help out when you can as a FOS Supporter, either come to one of our meetings or if you simply want to know more information, please don't hesitate to contact us. A little help goes a long way, and we would love to hear from you. You can contact FOS direct at firstname.lastname@example.org or by using the query form here.
EGS Cricket Uniforms
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.
New MLE Classroom Equipment
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!
FOS supplied an extra six new Chromebooks for classroom learning.
The students decorated the new Chromebook holder and aptly named it Fossie
FOS paid for the equipment needed to paint the courts with a variety of colourful games for lunchtime entertainment.
