We have an active and welcoming parents' association - the Friends of Bishop Hooper School, currently chaired by Hannah Hawkins, which very successfully organises various fund raising events throughout the year.
The money raised continues to be used towards the enhancement of the children's school experience by providing much needed equipment and enabling them to participate in many trips and learning experiences.
All parents are automatically members of the FoBHS. Regular meetings are held to which all parents are warmly invited.
Over the last year we have organised a school summer BBQ, a Valentines Disco, a hugely successful Christmas Fair, a Beetle Drive, Sports Day Teas, and the annual Big Breakfast event.
We have also facilitated the following which all bring in regular income
• the printing of School tea towels and
• Christmas cards both of which have brought modest profit (and lots of pleasure to parents!)
• Bags2School to clear out unwanted clothing and shoes
• Water bottle sales
• 100 Club
In addition, we are always happy to lend help with non-FOBHS causes such Bake Sales for Macmillan and Fair Trade and have done so this year.
