Friends of Halifax (FOH)

Welcome to the Friends of Halifax page

 

We are the school's Friends Association and we are always looking to welcome new members to the group.  We meet once every half term.  You do not have to be a parent to join our team; grandparents, aunties and uncles are also welcome to come along

 

At 2018 AGM, we had the pleasure of welcoming seven new parent members to the team, and we look forward to working together as we raise funds for the school.

 

We run a variety of fun events for our pupils and the wider community, whilst raising funds to enhance the experiences of the pupils at our school. Additionally, members of FOH work closely with the Halifax School Council and staff to decide how the money raised can be used to benefit the children's school experience.

 

Over the last few years FOH have contributed enormously to the life of the school by funding a range of resources; including playground equipment, Kindles, playground markings for games and maths games.
