Friends of Wigton Infant School (FOWIS) is a friendly group run by parents. The aim is to help provide closer links between home and school.
We hold events at the school throughout the year. This year’s events include a Valentine’s Disco, Easter Chocolate Bingo, and a Summer Social event that coincides with the school’s sports day. Profits raised by events held are used to enhance children's learning at school. These are items or little treats that benefit all children and go above and beyond what the school would usually purchase.
FOWIS meetings are held every half term in the community room at the school. Everyone is welcome to attend, with new ideas always welcomed. There are sometimes additional meetings held as necessary when we are planning larger events. We also have a group of volunteers who give some of their time to help with events either in the set up or on the day. Every little helps, so just one hour assisting at an event would be a great help.
It doesn’t matter if you can’t help on a regular basis, or even if you cannot come into school. We really couldn’t achieve what we do without the behind the scenes help. Could you help out for an hour at a disco? Could you donate a raffle prize? Could you bake a cake? All help is greatly appreciated.
