Friends of Oakura School (commonly known as ‘FOOS’)
is an enthusiastic group of parents who meet twice a term along with
Principal and a teacher representative.
FOOS supports the school by fundraising for items that complement
current school resources, usually by organising fun events and activities.
Through fundraising, FOOS has donated money to the school to support the
purchase of computer
and water toys, sports
resources, building and playground developments and a
subsidy for school sunhats
(keeping the cost to parents at only $5).
well as the donations and events, FOOS also organise
sizzles - at the Beach Clean Up day, Parent Lunch
Days and swimming sports; two
for new families to give them a chance to meet others;
to all the children after the popular end-of-year ‘Fun Run’.
