Our AGM was held on 12th September and the above members were voted in for the next school year.
At the AGM reports were read out from the President highlighting the fantastic fundraising year that FOBRS had completed and thanking all members for their continued hard work.
The Chairperson's report thanked all the members for their hard work - particularly those members whose children have left the school.
All money raised will be used to benefit all the children throughout the school and our thanks go to everybody who supports us throughout the year.

Bonfire Celebration 2011
Thank you to everybody who attended this year’s Bonfire celebration. An amazing night was enjoyed by all and with our £ for £ matched funding from Barclays we have raised an incredible £4,500 for school funds. THANK YOU!!
Special thanks also go to our trusty band of volunteer helpers - you know who you are! - without whom events such as this could not take place.
If you have any questions please do not hesitate to come and find any committee member and we will do our best to help (the majority of us are in the playground on a daily basis, especially during Wake and Shake!).
We were delighted to be able to hand over a cheque this year in the sum of £6,500 which will be used by the school to help fund trips and purchase equipments, together with £500 for each class to spend on their 'wish list'.
We would like to thank EVERYBODY who helps and supports us throughout the year to make donations like this a reality.
Thank you to everybody who left bags of textiles for recycling - we collected 167 bags in total.
The bags have now been collected and we raised £542.25 .
