FOMD exists to provide a close link between home and school and is an exceptional way to bring parents, friends and staff together socially in support of the school, whilst working towards a common goal. We are fortunate at our school to have a PTA that is and has been an integral part of the school community for many years.
In its time FOMD has raised thousands of pounds, which has been spent on equipment and resources to enhance the children’s education and experience and also the school’s facilities. Our project for 2015 is to raise £15,000 to help fund an outdoor exercise park with customized equipment to help keep the children healthy.
FOMD is about much more than simply fundraising. It is fun too - just ask one of the Committee, members or volunteers. Obviously, as in any organisation, we have experienced some challenges but with the continued support of parents and staff, our PTA has always succeeded in its efforts. All parents and members of the school community are encouraged to get involved, even if they only have a small amount of time available.
