The Friends of Solent Infant School (FSIS), and the Friends of Solent Junior School (FSJS), are two registered charities who raise funds and organise exciting activities and events for the children at Solent Infant School, and at Solent Junior School. We also provide funding and support for special activities within both schools.
The FSIS and FSJS are each overseen by a committee consisting of elected officers. All parents, guardians and extended family members of children in the Infant school are automatically members of the FSIS, and all parents, guardians and extended family members of children in the Junior school are automatically members of the FSJS.
Any member can join the committee or attend meetings at any time.
The current FSIS and FSJS committee’s are:
|Chair: Lisa Felstead||Chair : Polly Lodge|
|Vice Chair: Claire Hooper||Treasurer: Lisa Felstead|
|Vice Chair: Polly Lodge||Secretary : Izzy Cordery|
|Treasurer : Izzy Cordery|
|Communication Secretary : Janet Tutton|
|Publicity and Marketing : Kate Lewis|
Throughout the year we organise lots of exciting events and activities – these events include the children, teachers and parents and are always fantastic fun for everyone involved!. Some of our regular fundraising events include:
Christmas and Summer Fayres
Family Picnic Evening
Easter Egg Hunt
Christmas ‘Pop up’ Shop
Book Fundraiser Day
Personalised Christmas Cards
Christmas & Easter Drawing Competition (Infant School).
We are always looking for ideas for new and exciting events and activities we could organise. We are friendly and approachable, so if you have an idea for a new event please do get in touch, or attend one of our monthly committee meetings – who knows your idea may be our next big ‘event’!
We meet on the first Friday of each month in the Lighthouse Room at the Infant school, at 1.30pm – everyone in our ‘Solent Community’ is always very welcome to attend. The meetings are always informal, and generally accompanied by copious amounts of tea and cake!. So why not come along and get involved – we’d love to hear your thoughts!.
How you can help:
There are a variety ways you can help, by coming along to our meetings, joining a working party to organise an event, manning a stall at our fayres, or simply by coming along to our events and donating towards our fundraising activities. Every donation, be it time, money or effort is always greatly appreciated, and makes such a difference for the children at Solent Infant School and at Solent Junior School!
We look forward to seeing you at one of our events or meetings in the near future!
