FODs stands for Friends of Dewhurst, this is a registered charity that was set up to provide financial assistance to the school, providing resources that are not within the school budget or funded by the government.
Every parent/carer of a child that attends Dewhurst St Mary is automatically a member of FODs.
FODs aims to organise as many fun activities for the pupils throughout the school year, including non-uniform days and discos. Any suggestions for new events are always welcomed.
We appreciate that everybody has responsibilities to jobs/careers and families. However any time that can be spared to help is greatly appreciated. We have one dad that always does a BBQ at the school prom which is an invaluable contribution once a year. Without the support of all members the children could lose their special events provided by FODs.
There are regular meetings held at the school to welcome new ideas and input from everybody, usually lasting for 20-30 minutes, children are welcome to join us. Please check school letters or the FODs board for meeting dates and upcoming events.
