Friends of Langafel (FOLS)
All About FOLS
Our school is very fortunate to have an active PTA that has been such an integral part of the school community for several years. In its time FOLS has raised thousands of pounds which has been spent on improving equipment and resources to enhance our children’s education and facilities in school.
All parents and members of the school community can get involved even if they only have a small amount of time available. It is an excellent way to bring together staff, parents and friends to achieve the best for our children at Langafel School.
If you are a new parent, with children just joining the school, then please take a look at our New Parent Information booklet. It will give you an overview of what we are all about and how you can get involved, even if you have only a limited amount of time to spare.
The Current Committee:
Headteacher: Mrs C Woodbine
Chairperson: Nisha Tappu
Vice-chairperson: Lisa Miller
Treasurer: Laura Granados
Secretary: Diane Furlong
Member: Jane Dyett

How does your support help?
The support parents give, by attending and helping at our events, has enabled us to raise enough funds to make a real difference. Since September 2015 we have given the school:
£1,000 for New Sports Equipment.
£1,545 towards school trips. That’s £5 per child.
Christmas chocolate selections for every child from Santa.
£500 for the Quantum Theatre visit that took place in January.
£1,507 to buy a Canon digital camera, case and SD card for each class.
Some chunky playground chalks for the EYFS and KS1.
£180 for 300 pencil cases.
We have also set aside £2,500 for some new playground art, £500 for new netball court lines and £4,000 towards new ICT equipment which the school will be purchasing soon.
Please keep supporting our events so that we can continue to improve equipment and resources in school.
If you have any ideas about what you would like to see in and around the school or any ideas for future events we could run, please do not hesitate to either approach one of the FOLS committee, email Natalie English or come along to our meetings. Thank you.
Mothers Day Gift Room
The Mothers Day Gift Room is very popular each year and there are always superb gifts on offer. The children thoroughly enjoy choosing their presents. Thank you to everyone who has supported this event.
FOLS Quiz night on 26th February was a great success. We would like to thank all the teachers and parents who came along. It was a fun evening and we raised £431.
FOLS Christmas Gift Room
Once again this Gift Room was a huge success, allowing all pupils to buy Christmas gifts for their loved ones. The children are so proud of what they buy and are always keen to show their teachers. We hope that you enjoyed opening your gifts on Christmas Day!
FOLS funded Ultm8 Warrior for the children last July. They had an amazing time running through all the obstacles, most of which weren’t as easy as they may look!

Last year FOLS arranged a superb Easter Eggstravagansa for the pupils and families at Langafel School. Despite the wind the children enthusiastically hunted for their eggs and took part in a range of activities.
The refreshments were delicious and enjoyed by all!
Thank you to everyone who made this event possible.
