St John & St Francis O.S.C.A.R is a registered charity who organise events and raise money to enhance the experiences of our children. We are a group of parents, friends, family and staff who volunteer to run events and are always looking for new members and ideas.
Co-Chairs: Laura Ensor & Sarah Kennedy
Secretary: Vikki Large
We always need more committee members to attend the monthly meetings, help prepare for events and coordinate activities. We are a very supportive group and will always help you with any task you choose to take on. Younger siblings are welcome to tag along to most events as we know childcare can be a problem. Children are welcome to attend O.S.C.A.R meetings (make sure they have something to do) – we strive to keep meetings to 1 hour long.
Our most recent project – We are currently working with the Governors to raise funds for an all weather sports pitch for all the children to enjoy. More details can be found on our Facebook page along with a just giving page if you would like to donate and share. We consider requests from both staff and children.
We like to fund extra curricular activities to enhance lessons eg. Science shows, story tellers, life bus etc.
We have funded first aid training for year 6 over the last few years and revamping the reception outdoor area, pond area and other areas around the school.
We also use our funds to buy Christmas gifts for each child, put on Christmas parties, subsidise trips, buy equipment and organise a leavers party for our Year 6’s each year, amongst other things.
We organise events to raise money, such as fairs and bingo, but also events that give the children and their families a great experience, like the discos, where the children have hands on experience using money, and fairs, where the children run their own stalls. We are always keen to hear your ideas for events.
