Friends of Ashdell

The Friends of Ashdell (FOA) is a charity consisting of parents and teachers that organises social and fundraising events to enhance the life of the school.  All parents automatically become Friends (at no cost) when their daughter(s) joins the school.  FOA is run by a trustees formed of representatives from each class, along with three members of staff including Mrs Camm.  Trustee members are nominated and then elected at the AGM which takes place in September.  The trustees usually meets twice a term at school with extra meetings for those involved in specific events.  And most importantly we try to have a social evening out each term!

During the year FOA holds a few regular events, which include a Quiz Night, the Christmas Fayre, a Karaoke Disco for the girls and a Summer Ball for parents held jointly with Birkdale School.  There is also usually an Ashdell Under The Stars Camp in the summer term, which, weather permitting is usually a successful event.  We are always open to suggestions for new events.

Other than just fundraising, a significant role of FOA is in enhancing the community of parents, girls and staff within the school.  The various social events that take place, both those organised by the trustees and within class groups, all help to engender a very friendly and welcoming atmosphere within the school.

The funds we raise are used to purchase items on the school’s ‘wish-list’, and are extra resources which we hope will enhance our daughters’ experience at Ashdell.  See the page ‘What are FOA raised funds used for’ for more information about how the funds help Ashdell.
