The 100 Club – the March draw was won by Mrs Helena McBride.

Have you joined? Here’s how it works…

You complete and sign a membership form and either

– set up a Standing Order for £2 a month, or
– pay £24 by cheque/cash for a 12 month period.

This buys you one membership number, which enters you into the monthly draw. (All participants must be over 16)

£30 draw will take place in the final assembly of each month with the exception of the two months in which the Summer and Winter fairs fall.  In these months the normal draw is replaced with a special £200 draw at the fair.
All profits raised go to FOWPS to help fund equipment, resources and opportunities for pupils.
If you are interested in joining the 100 Club and entering the monthly draws please see Amanda Lyons for more information or pick up an application form from the school foyer.
