FOSPA stands for Friends of St Paul’s Association, and is a charitable organisation run by parents.
Our mission is to:
- Foster community spirit through parent involvement
- Raise funds for the school
FOSPA raises money to supplement St. Paul’s budget. In recent years, money generated by FOSPA has subsidised school outings, provided technology (Interactive Whiteboards for each classroom), publications such as The Week Junior Magazine, Eggs to hatch for Year 1, theatre performances, funded author and artist visits, and improved the school facilities.
Through numerous parent organised events, FOSPA also builds community spirit, bringing together parents, staff, students and the local community.
We organise annual events such as the Christmas Fair and summer barbeque where parents work together to create successful and enjoyable gatherings for children, parents and staff. There are also numerous informal activities such as the monthly class Snack Sales. Everyone’s time, effort and donations are always gratefully received, and a big ‘thank you’ to all who give so generously.
We also extend our thanks to the local residents, shops and business who generously support us with gifts for our raffles and auction prizes as well as food for our events.
All FOSPA events are listed in the School Diary.
