Friends of Arnside National School (FOANS) raises money to advance the education of all the pupils in the school by enriching school life. This money enables the school to pay for events, activities, facilities or equipment which are outside the normal school budget.
Our association is about much more than simply fundraising. FOANS exists to provide closer links between home and school and it is an excellent way to bring staff, parents and friends together socially in support of the school, working towards a common goal.
As a ‘friends’ association, all members of the local community are welcome and encouraged to get involved, even if you only have a small amount of time available. All families are automatically members of FOANS when their child joins our school.
If you'd like to learn more about FOANS or get involved, we'd love to hear from you.
