Pinewood School

FOP Events

As well as raising money for the school and local charities, the events they hold bring people together in a fun, relaxed, and social environment.  Some of the highlights of the year are Bonfire Night, the Christmas Fair, the Summer Afternoon and the annual Quiz Night.

FOP Donations

Through these fundraising events, FOP has been able to make substantial donations to local charities, as well as providing funding for a number of impressive and enterprising school projects in recent years, including the Treetops adventure playground, a mountain bike track, a smoke machine for the Theatre, hockey goalie equipment, sponsorship of the FOP Poetry Challenge, Morph suits for the Year 6 play, golf equipment, Learning Support C pens for dyslexia, and most importantly the Outdoor Classroom.

 

Charities

We feel it is important that the children are aware of giving to charity through the fun they have at FOP events and that they know which worthy causes they are supporting; each school house and the Pre-Prep, therefore, chooses a local charity for FOP to support each year. 

Our current charities are as follows:

Postbridge: Swindon Night Shelter

Motcombe: Oxford Animal Sanctuary

Melchet: Pennyhooks Farm Trust

Farnborough: ‘Threshold’ in Swindon 

Pre-Prep: Oak and Furrows Wildlife Rescue Centre

In addition to our charities, we support a young student, Rachida, through World Vision, adopt four animals at Cotswold Wildlife Park, and have been able to provide Bishopstone Primary School (with whom we have a strong link) with a playground canopy.

As a committee, they have a lot of fun and are always looking for volunteers to help at events. If you think you would be interested in helping us, please speak to Nicola Bailey or any member of FOP.
