Friends of Wraxall School Association (FWSA)
The Friends of Wraxall School Association (FWSA) is a registered charity (1134471) that is the parent-teacher association for the school. We raise money and organise activities to support the educational outcomes and wellbeing of students, their carers and the wider community at Wraxall C of E Primary School in North Somerset.
The FWSA's mission is to assist the school in the funding of essential items and activities required by both pupils and teachers, to enrich the experience of every child at Wraxall school and for them all to benefit from the 'little extras' which cannot be covered by the school budget.
This is achieved by running a range of fundraising events throughout the year while bringing a social side to the school by ensuring events cater for children and parents alike.
There are a number of hugely popular events that feature regularly in the fundraising calendar. These include Christmas and Summer Fayres (our biggest events), Summer BBQ (designed to welcome Reception parents to the school), Quiz Night, Movie 'Nights' for kids, cake sales, and textile recycling collections.
In addition to this, we organise special one-off events to raise extra funds for specific projects - these have included a Mums' skydive, Dads' abseil down Avon Gorge, Pandemonium Race (a team mud-running event) and an individual 41-mile run.
When your child starts school, you automatically become a member of the FWSA and you are encouraged to get involved in whatever way you would like.
We meet every couple of months at the Battleaxes Pub, usually at 8pm. Forthcoming meeting dates are shared in the regular FWSA email newsletter. Please feel free to come along, express any views you might have and get involved. It's a great, informal opportunity to share a drink with fellow parents.
Should you have any suggestions, comments, want to get a bit more involved or just want to find out more information, please ask any of the committee members or leave a message at the office.
A big thank you to all parents, carers and teachers for their continued support in making Wraxall such an amazing school for all our children.
