FoG Newsletter November 2021

  • by

Hi all,

Tis the season! As you may have seen pictures come home the children have been designing their own holiday cards in school – either Christmas cards or an alternative picture if they don’t celebrate Christmas. Your child should have brought their artwork home with a code on the back, which you need to place an order. As well as cards, you can also order gift tags, wrapping paper and even mugs with your child’s picture on.

To order visit and have your code to hand – the deadline for orders is Wednesday 10th November 2021. And if you place an order please return your child’s artwork to your class teacher on Wednesday 10th November

Cards and other items ordered will be delivered to school by the beginning of December. A proportion of the cost of the orders will go to FoG so it’s also a great fundraiser for the school. Any questions please contact

Quiz Night

The return of the fab FoG Quiz Night! Questions, competitions, and prizes galore. Come and test your general knowledge against other teams of parents to see who will be crowned Goodrich School Quiz Champs 2021!

AGM Update

The FoG’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) was a very productive meeting, thank you to all that attended. For those that weren’t able to attend we have included the presentation, along with the notes from the meeting. We are delighted to report new trustees to FoG have been appointed, a full list of new trustees is in the meeting notes. We also had to say a sad goodbye to Jos Howard and Karen Eastwood who stepped down, they have been absolute superstars over the years, have given FoG & the school an enormous amount of help, and will truly be missed!

As a reminder, the main purpose of the AGM is to report on FoG’s fundraising & spending, to elect new committee members/trustees, and allocate roles to volunteers for the coming school year. The committee is responsible for making decisions about the running of FoG, for example how funds can be raised, and how they should be spent. We still have some roles on FoG available, if you are interested in getting involved please get in touch – drop by the next meeting or email us on
