Friends of BHS (Parents' association)
Beaconsfield High School has an active Parents Association in the form of the Friends of Beaconsfield High School (FoBHS).
The FoBHS provides a link between parents and the school and organises various events throughout the year, serving the dual purpose of strengthening the social bonds between parents and raising funds to provide extra items for the students of the school.
The type of events organised and run by the FoBHS are:
- Year 7 and 8 discos
- Quiz nights
- Comedy nights
- Becky High Hundreds Club - a regular subscription-based prize draw
- Bar Service provision at school events
- Pre-Owned Uniform Store – the shop is open every Friday lunch time at school
- The Friends of BHS also works on large-scale events run by the school, including the Festive Fair, summer celebrations and Burns Night.
Over the past few years the FoBHS has generated sufficient funds to help finance major projects such as purchasing a mini bus and paying for building works. It has also helped provide a host of smaller items and opportunities to benefit the students, including entry to drama competitions, kits for sports squads, equipment for the maths department and ICT, a new PA system for the school hall, refurbishment of the Tower Block toilets, new signs around the school and new furniture for the Learning Resource centre.
WE NEED YOU!
The FoBHS committee meets a couple of times each term to plan events and consider how best to support school projects. We would love to hear from you with any ideas to raise even more funds for the school, whilst enhancing the relationships in the school community.
If you feel that you might like to get involved in any way or if you would like more details please contact:
