A new and exciting chapter for our PTA, FOMBA

Dear Parents/Carers,

As the students are welcomed back to school this week for a new and exciting year, the school’s parent and teachers’ association ‘FOMBA’ is also looking forward to a new chapter.

After several fantastic years at the helm, the current committee is stepping down and we are hoping some fresh blood will help this fantastic charity to continue to grow, so we can provide even more support to our school.

For those parents who are new to Marus Bridge or aren’t sure; what Is FOMBA?

FOMBA (Friends of Marus Bridge Association) is a charity registered organisation which has been established to enhance the education of the pupils at Marus Bridge.

Members are volunteers consisting of both parents and staff who work collaboratively to raise funds which supports Marus Bridge in enhancing the children’s school experience. We organise and host fund-raising activities throughout the year, the proceeds of which enable us to support and fund many school initiatives that the school budget just simply cannot cover.

We always endeavour to spend our funds in ways that will benefit all our children, across all areas of the school and curriculum. We always aim high with our ambitions!

A message from the new Chair

As we start this new and exciting chapter for FOMBA, I would like to introduce myself and the new committee members.

Chair – Adam Jones

Vice Chair - Sarah Halsall

Treasurer - Rebecca Jones

Secretary - Sarah Bentley

“Many hands make light work” so we are now actively on the hunt for as many volunteers to join us as possible. We only meet once a term on a Monday evening, so the demand on your time is not too heavy.

Our first open meeting is on Monday 11th September at 5:30pm and we would love to see as many of you there as possible. If you would like to get involved but cannot attend for any reason, we are more than happy to welcome you via Teams.

If you have any questions, feel free to give me a call on 07730 131000 or drop me an email to adamjones.fomba@gmail.com.

Thank you.

Mr A. Jones

We look forward to seeing you soon,

FOMBA committee.
