FOHNS Summer BBQ July 10th 5-7pm

We are fast approaching the Summer BBQ which is a big fundraiser for the school. The FOHNS committee are working hard on arranging this evening (further details to follow) but would like to ask for some help on the day.

We would like to ask for 2 volunteers from each class to do a 1 hour slot on a stall 5-6pm or 6-7pm. Are you are able to give up just 1 hour of your time to help at this essential fundraiser, which helps us provide much needed support to your child’s school? If so please sign up on the sheet outside your child’s classroom door.

Thank you,

The FOHNS Committee
