We invite you to join us, the Friends Of Great Leighs School (FOGLS), in raising much needed funds to benefit all of the children at our school.
As a charity we support Great Leighs Primary School with financial assistance for sports and play equipment, funding events such as pantomimes and Shakespeare workshops and also contributing towards the cost of educational trips and swimming lessons.
Our next big fundraising challenge is raising money for much needed new playground equipment, to replace/repair the play apparatus in the KS2 playground which is currently taped-off and not in use. We feel that new play equipment will bring massive benefits to the the mental well-being, physical agility and social skills such as co-operation and sharing, to the children. Encouraging the children to play actively outdoors at break and lunchtimes will also help their fitness levels and their learning back in the classroom. The new equipment will replace the broken play equipment in the KS2 playground and so will benefit the younger children too, who will enjoy using it for many years to come.
