FOBs - Friends of Buntingsdale
The Parent Teachers and Friends Association (known as FOBs) raises money for all the children at Buntingsdale. The FOBs meet regularly to plan fundraising activies and to plan where the money raised will be spent. They help pay for equipment and activites for all the children at Buntingsdale. Any parent, family member or carer can join the FOBs. Speak to one of the committee members, or just come along to a meeting to get involved.

What We Have Supported
With the funds we have raised we have successfully helped to improve the school grounds with purchases like the trim trail, sand pit and playground markings. We have also contributed money towards school visits to help reduce the cost of these visits for parents. We hope to continue to raise money and support the school with future initiatives. If you have any ideas to raise money or thoughts on what we could purchase for school to support the children's learning please come along to our next meeting.
