The school has a very active Friends of Woodside Committee of volunteers mostly made up of parents at the school.
The friends arrange fund raising activities as well as social events, they make a valuable contribution to the school and help fund many activities and purchase new equipment for the school. Examples include picnic benches, the pirate ship on the playground, books, library furniture, the yearly subscription of espresso for the classrooms, and the yearly subscription of Sing Up, Christmas art & craft materials, and much more.
Below are the members of the committee who are assigned to certain jobs, but there are many more members who help with events during the year.
- Louise Copeland – Chair
- Lucy Thompson – Vice Chair
- Kimberley Powles – Secretary
- Joanne Adcock – Treasurer
- Emma Pugh – Staff Member
If you could spare some time and would like to join the committee, please speak to the office staff, and they will put you in touch with a member of the committee. Being a member of the FOWs is a very enjoyable & rewarding role.
