FORS

The Friends of The Roche School (FORS) is a parent teacher association and a registered charity (number 1152119) run entirely by parent volunteers. We organise a variety of fundraising and social events with the aim of enriching school life for all families at the school.

We welcome your questions, comments and suggestions. Simply get in touch with your class representative, or email rochefriends@gmail.com.

WHAT WE DO

We raise funds for the “nice extras” and equipment that will enrich school life for all pupils.

We also organise fun activities that bring parents, pupils and staff together, promoting a strong school community. These include Movie Nights, a Quiz Night, the Festive Fair, a Disco, Second Hand Uniform Sales and the Summer Fete.

In the past,  funds raised by parents have been used for:

  • Two new school minibuses
  • 20 iPads, chargers and protective cases
  • Housepoint boxes
  • A stage for the main hall
  • A rock climbing wall, other playground equipment and a mural
  • Bursaries

We also like to raise money for charities. This year we are supporting charities that the pupils themselves have selected for their houses.

FORS MEETINGS

We hold regular meetings to discuss school items of topical interest and general PTA matters. The meetings are open to all parents and staff of the school, so we would love to see you there!

STEM Week – Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths at The Roche School

The week commencing 3rd October will be STEM Week at The Roche School, based around the theme of Water. STEM stands for Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths, so the week will involve many exciting experiments, challenges and construction activities. On  Monday 3rd October, STEM Week will be kicked off by a special whole school assembly centred on the theme of ‘Water’, led by a special guest…Science Man. Throughout the day every class will have a workshop looking at the importance of water, uses of water and water experiments. On Tuesday 4th October we will be holding a whole school ‘Times Tables Challenge’, where every child will compete (with differentiated tables) to gain as many points for their house as possible. Good luck! On Thursday 6th October, The STEM team at school will lead an interactive assembly and award prizes won during the weeks’ challenges.
