As part of planning around social distancing in the current climate, students are especially encouraged to spend break and lunchtimes outdoors, and Fitzharrys School has specific areas allocated on site for each year group bubble. As such, the FSA is helping to fund the development of these areas, and aims to raise enough money to purchase colourful, comfortable, social seating areas. We want to increase the amount of seating areas available within each year group bubble, making each space more inviting and accommodating for the students. The school and the FSA have reached this decision after consultation with the students as they identified additional seating as a key priority.
As a long-term aim, the FSA would love to buy 15 new picnic benches similar to those pictured (3 for each year group) to greatly increase the seating capacity of our outdoor spaces. Each picnic bench costs just under £500, so it would be wonderful to raise enough to buy 1 for each year group (7-11) straight away, with a view towards a spring term installation.
Normally at this time of year we would be planning fundraising events and looking forward to inviting the wider school community in to Fitzharrys, but as that can't happen this year we would be very grateful if you would considering donating here to help support the improvements for our school and our students.
Everyone who donates money to the FSA via this GoFundMe page by the end of Wednesday 16th December will be entered into a prize draw to win the FSA’s Big Christmas Hamper, filled with a fabulous variety of festive treats!
From the FSA and the staff and students of Fitzharrys, thank you so much for your continued support and generosity.
