Parents’ Assocation

FOGS at Prep (Friend’s of Gresham’s)

Gresham’s Prep has a vibrant Parents’ Association whose main focus is fundraising and organising social events for both parents and pupils. Events are held throughout the year – meet new families or catch up with old friends after the Summer break at the September Social or enjoy a flat white at the weekly Friday Morning Coffee. The Annual Quiz is always hotly contested whilst the long-running Christmas Fayre and riotous Football Festival are firm favourites with the children.

Current fundraising is focused on the exciting new Kitchen Cabin project. Bringing a state of the art community kitchen to the centre of Holt. Previous fundraising efforts have secured a multitude of additions to Gresham’s Prep – a nature garden, the library extension, table tennis tables and the well-loved log swing in the adventure playground are just a few in recent years.

The PA are always keen to hear from new parents with ideas and suggestions.  Meetings are held roughly every month on a Saturday after Chapel. With coffee flowing, it’s the place to meet new friends, get involved or just enjoy the coffee!

For more information about the Kitchen Cabin or for any questions about the Parents’ Association, please just email Alice or Di on fogsprep@gmail.com
