Friends of Malvern Way (FoMW)
A big hello from Friends of Malvern Way, the Parent and Teachers Association (PTA) for Malvern Way! The PTA is a registered charity with a current board comprising Pritee Almeida – Co-Chair, Ruth Mackintosh – Co-Chair, Dina Vasani – Treasurer, Natasha Adams – Co-Secretary and Anita Yeung – Co-Secretary.
FoMW is a separate entity that works with the school on a regular basis to organise various events that raise money for the school. We are parent volunteers and represent you, the parents, carers and guardians of MW pupils to enhance the school learning and our collective community experience.
Last year, through the funds raised by our various events, FoMW gifted the school £10,000 towards the refurbishment of the Woodland Area which has given our children an incredible start to the autumn term and has been the focal point for the curriculum.
The academic year 2022/2023 will be focusing on – PARENTAL COMMUNITY ENGAGEMENT & CELEBRATING DIVERSITY.
2021/2022 saw FoMW bring back some old traditions and make a few new ones which really focused on the bringing together the whole school community and with events like the Welcome Back Picnic and Spooky Spectacular in starting the year and the Year 2 leavers party and Jubilee Festival ending it, we are delighted to say we have achieved that! It’s hard to imagine that 2021 started with year group bubbles! The transition we’ve all been on has been like a rollercoaster to say the least!
2022/2023 has started with a bang and feels like we are getting back to “normal” and as such, being respectful to the past whilst acknowledging changes and the new FoMW Board, we’d like to focus on getting the parents back on board and celebrating our wonderfully diverse community! Working with the school, FoMW have an exciting roster of events planned for the Autumn term, BUT this will not be possible unless we have the support of the school community; the board will happily organise and coordinate events, but we need parents/carers/guardians to volunteer too.
We urge you to take part and make a difference.
If you have any time to spare, a skill to share or are interested in becoming a board member, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org. Your commitment to FoMW could be as simple as attending a PTA meeting and letting your class group know what has occurred via your class WhatsApp group, or helping to create a regular newsletter or helping to run a games stall at one of the events. If an hour a month is all you have to give – we’ll happily take it! So please do know that is enough.
Finally, we are all EARS! The best way to have your say is to attend our regular PTA meetings. If you find you unexpectedly can’t make one, then we will receive your thoughts on email if your class rep hasn’t already informed us of this – but we do find in person has a much better outcome.
Best ways to contact FoMW are:
- at our PTA meetings
- via your class representative
- on the school run
- a phonecall/whatsapp/email/messenger (see below)
