Every parent is automatically a member of this flourishing and very active organisation.

Firstly, we would like to say a huge THANK YOU to Wawne Parish Council for the kind donation of £1,000 to the FOWSA Fundraising Funds.

We’d also like to thank the Parents for their tremendous support over the last term. We had great success with our Movie night the children loved it. Chocolate Bingo sold out too with a full house! It was a fun filled family night full of chocolate and cakes. We had a beautiful sunny afternoon for our Mother’s Day Sales we set up our stall of daffodils, primroses and pansies in the school playground and exceeded all expectations. The children did a great job of the Easter Service at St Peter’s Church. We all enjoyed tea and hot cross buns afterwards at the school. We raffled a Chocolate hamper.

If you are keeping your eyes on our ‘Totalizer’ in the post office window you will see we have raised £3,000 towards the Car Park Fund. Thank you for all your support…Please keep supporting us?? and together we’ll get to our target.

We are still looking for ways to raise extra funds for the Parent Car Park/drop off area All donations would be greatly appreciated. If you would like to help in any way, please let us know.


We will be holding a ‘City of Culture’ TEA PARTY at the School keep a look out for the date. You are all invited to come along bring yours friends, neighbours and relations for a cuppa a chat and a slice of delicious homemade cake.

If you fancy RUNNING and raising money for Wawne School we have a Running Group entering the Walkington 10k on Friday 14th July an online ‘Just Giving Account’ will be set up for you to sponsor our running team.

Come and see us at Wawne Festival on Saturday 15th July. This year our stalls will include Pre-loved toy stall, Coconut Shy, Cup Cakes and Glitter Tattoo’s.

Thank you for your support.

FOWSA Committee


The hard-working committee, which we encourage people to join, plan and deliver great fund-raising and social events throughout the year. Primarily these are focused on providing essential assistance to the school but are also a lot of fun. Over the course of the year we hold a number of fun fund raising activities and events such as ‘Chocolate Bingo’ Tea Parties, Raffles, Prize Food Hampers and stalls at Wawne Show and seasonal events like the very popular Halloween party

The money, raised annually by the association, is often well in excess of that raised by bigger schools and is always used to benefit the children at the school.

F.O.W.S.A. have teamed up with a sub company of the Goodwin Trust called Fareshare. Fareshare are an organisation that provide quality food products from the food and drinks industry, which historically have been put in to landfill, and redistributes them to organisations working within the community, like us! We have called this the ‘Helping Hands Scheme’ as it helps us provide a much-needed base income for our fund raising which allows us to help support the school and children with activities, travel and equipment over and above the norm.

You will be made very welcome at any event you attend that has been organised by F.O.W.S.A. Details of activities and events will be advertised in the Wawne Gazette throughout 2017

FOWSA are always looking for new innovative ways to raise money for our School so if anyone has any ideas for new and fun ways to fundraise your suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

FOWSA have agreed to lead a fund-raising campaign for a Parent Car Park/drop off area within the school grounds. The area around the school at pick up and drop off times has become dangerously congested with cars. We believe that this will help make the journey safer for those children and parents that walk to school during peak times. FOWSA have pledged £1,250 and we are looking for further financial support, we are approaching local businesses and national organisations in a bid to help raise funds for the project. We have a totalizer in the Post Office window designed and made by the children. All donations are greatly appreciated. Thank you for your continued support and if you would like to help in any way, please let us know.
