FOOSHC Movie Day this Friday

FOOSHC will be hosting a Movie Day this Friday (11th May 2018) during After School Care. We will be viewing Paddington, and popcorn and choc-top ice creams will be served in addition to afternoon tea.
If your child is not already booked in, some casual spots are still available! Why not join us?

Volunteering in the Canteen

The Canteen is looking for some volunteers.  Please see the attached document on canteen volunteers for the full FAQ.

Currently, Thursdays and Fridays from 9am-11am.
It’s best if you can make a regular commitment, whether weekly, fortnightly or monthly. It helps you get into a routine and gives the canteen more reliability.
It is busy but friendly with plenty of laughs – it’s NOT Gordon Ramsey’s Hell’s Kitchen!
We work as a team, with everyone clear on what they are doing and free to ask questions as they work. We must achieve the 10.50am deadline, so there is lots of checking on where everyone is up to as the morning progresses. From around 10.30am the pace ramps up and by 10.45am we get a great sense of achievement when the children start arriving at the door to collect their orders.
Canteen helpers are welcome to take a free drink from the fridge (or a snack if they prefer) at any time during the morning.
Having a quick chat with the Canteen Manager beforehand can help us work out where you’d be of most help. We want you to feel comfortable, not anxious about what you are doing.
