We organise fun, social events for our girls and their families, whilst raising money to benefit the girls at the Junior School. We run second-hand uniform sales which is a great way to recycle your old uniform and to pick up a bargain. We also produce school calendars for both sites which are great quality and have lovely photographs of the girls. Our aim is to run events which are enjoyed by our girls and their families. Our biggest events are our annual Christmas and Summer Fairs, which feature a mixture of food, drink, stalls and fun!
We organise regular cake sales, which are always popular with the girls. We take over Oxford Ice Rink for Junior FOxHS on Ice, which is a favourite for many girls and this year has a Canadian feel! New to Junior FOxHS this year is Bingo, a classic which can be enjoyed by all the family, young or old, and is served up with the classic of fish & chips.
The Junior FOxHS committee includes parents from every year of the Junior School, staff from the Junior School and the Chair of Senior FOxHS. We meet once a term officially, but meet more often for a friendly coffee whilst we’re planning events. As well as the Junior FOxHS committee, there are many committed parents from every year group who help to make our events a success.
There are lots of ways to support Junior FOxHS – by coming along to events and joining in, donating items for sales, baking cakes for our cake sales, running stalls, recycling your uniform via the second hand shop and helping to tidy up after events. So please do help if you can!
Money raised is donated to the Annual Fund and provides for those extras which help the girls to enjoy their time at the Junior School to the full. So far this year the Annual Fund has spent money on height appropriate (pink!) netball posts, a visiting author for World Book Day and trophies for the Junior School.
