Friends of Anne Dale Schools, FADS, is a federated PTA covering both the Infant and Junior School. We are a friendly group of parents who organise events to fundraise for both schools. We are also supported by friends, family, school staff as well as the local community and businesses.
The funds raised by FADS are used to provide extra activities in both schools, including visiting authors, music and drama workshops, Year 2 and Year 6 leavers' parties etc. We also raise funds for much bigger projects, which have included the outdoor classroom, Green Day equipment a sound system for the infant school.
Our most recent projects include refurbishing the Junior school library and providing out door equipment and playground markings for the Infant school.
We organise a variety of events throughout the year, these include Junior school discos, Infant school film club, sponsored fun run, Mother’s Day and Father’s Day stalls, Christmas Shop as well as our successful Summer and Christmas Fayres.
FADS is a registered charity run by a committee who are elected annually at the AGM. We are always looking for new faces and fresh ideas. We meet regularly each half term to discuss new fundraising ideas, current events etc.
We appreciate that not everyone is able to commit on a regular basis, but we are always needing volunteers to help run our events. This can range from helping at the school discos, film club, helping to set up or clear away after one of our fayres, helping to man a stall at the fayre, helping to wrap gifts for the Christmas shop. There are lots of ways you can support us.
