New Parents & Carers Welcome Coffee Morning goes down a treat
We kick-started our events programme this year by partnering with the teaching staff to organise a Welcome Coffee Morning for new parents/carers and children.
The Welcome Coffee Morning took place on Saturday, 22 October 2016 in the school hall as part of the school’s Open Day.
All new parents/carers whose children have recently joined the school were invited to join us for coffee. We wanted to provide an opportunity for new parents/carers to meet other families in their child’s class and the wider school community. We also saw this as an opportunity to welcome our new families to the school and to tell them about the wonderful events FOHM organise for the children throughout the year and the social link it provides for parents/carers.
The FOHM team were on hand to welcome our new families serving up a wonderful selection of homemade cakes.
Thank you for your support
We would like to thank everyone who came along to our New Parents & Carers Welcome Coffee Morning. It was great to meet you and we hope that you enjoyed it as much as we did.
A big thank you also to the parents/carers who baked the delicious cakes – they went down a treat. Thanks also to Rachael Forster, Sarah Smith, Natalie Warren, Jane Wood, Helen Ghagan and Lucy Holroyd for helping out on the day. And didn’t they look great?
New FOHM Branded T-Shirts
For those of you who attended the welcome event and school open day, you may have noticed that the FOHM team were looking the part in their new FOHM Branded T-Shirts, as seen in the photo above. Thank you to Jacquie Hudson of Hudson Marketing Consultancy Ltd (Mum of Emma Hudson Year 6 and Ethan Hudson Year 2) for kindly sponsoring the t-shirts and to FOHM Committee Member, Samantha Stackhouse for the great idea and organising.
This was our inaugural New Parents & Carers Welcome Coffee Morning and the feedback we have received has been very positive. We hope that this will now feature as an annual event for the FOHM and the school.
