Friends of Normandale School

Formerly the P.T.A. – A Registered Charity, Number CC31777

FoNS is a small group of parents who organise, or help to organise the school's fundraising and family-focused, social events for the school community.  If you have a bright idea to put the FUN into fundraising we would love to hear about it.


We meet just once or twice a term.  Meetings are usually Monday evenings at 7:30pm - next one to be advised (look out for dates on this page on our facebook page, and in school newsletter). All parents and caregivers are welcome. We would love new people to join us this year as some of the more established FoNS members have children leaving the school.

Annual General Meeting


The AGM for the new school year was held on Thursday 22nd February 2018.  Plans for 2018 were discussed e.g. fundraising budget and events/activities and are briefly detailed below.


FoNS events and activities planned for 2018:



Family Social - Fish N Chips night
Friday 16th March from 5pm


TERM 2: 
Kids' Movie Night - 3rd August 


Knees Up! Friday 14 December


Thank you for your support in promoting, attending and/or helping out with these activities and events. We gratefully accept whatever help you can offer - whether it's for one event or activity, or several.  You do not necessarily have to make the meetings, but if you can put your names forward as people who would be happy to help with a couple of the advertised events or activities, that would be fantastic e.g. selling drinks at events, stoking up the BBQ, helping out at book stalls, baking cakes for parent teas, loading up some disco music, shepherding children at events, etc.

The more help we receive the more we can achieve!
