FOLS is the Friends Association here at Longstone School. This might include parents, teachers, grandparents and members of the community. We raise funds by organising regular events, both in and out of school. The monies raised from these events are used to fund activities, equipment and special experiences, to support and enhance the learning of your children.
UPCOMING EVENTS WITH FOLS
The Great Longstone Elf Trail 2021
The Great Longstone Elf Trail begins 16th December and will run through to Boxing Day.
Larry the Longstone Elf has hidden letters all over the village. Can you find them and work out what Larry's trying to say? There's a reward to be collected at The White Lion pub for all of you who can crack the code!
Elf Trail instructions and map have just been emailed out those families who have signed up. If you still want to take part, please email us at email@example.com.
Social Events For Children And Families
Children love getting together out of school hours, so we plan a range of events during the year including a Summer Sizzle, Easter egg hunts and Activities, Quiz Nights, Winter Disco and Christmas Bazaar to name but a few.
The school is always under pressure to provide an ever widening range of extra curricular activities and there is a constant need to enrich the resources available to all children. Over time, FOLS has raised funds towards new outdoor play equipment, new IT equipment, a new kitchen, the school hall, a greenhouse and many more class-based resources such as books, maths games, wet play activities and sports equipment.
We also support the school in contributing towards theatre, poetry and design workshops as well as trips to visit galleries or museums. As a Voluntary Aided Church School, the school community has to fund 10% of large building projects - in 2015 we finished raising £34,000 towards the redevelopment of the school building. Something we are very proud of and grateful to everyone who has supported this.
Please see below for some of our upcoming and recent events.
Christmas Film Night 2021
We hope your little ones all enjoyed the Christmas Film Night? We raised £100 .
A huge thank you to all the Longstone staff who gave up their time to run the event and make it so magical .
Christmas Bazaar 2021
Thank you so much everyone for your support and help to make this year's FOLS Christmas Bazaar so successful . We feel so lucky that it was able to go ahead (and with good weather!), and with a visit from Santa in his incredible grotto, donkeys, games, and a sprinkling of snow, it really was magical .
