FOWVIS events during the year
The Friends of Windlesham Village Infant School organises fundraising as well as social events for both parents/carers and their children. The proceeds of these events are then donated to the School to improve equipment, technology, and play and learning spaces, as well as support other projects centred on maintaining the outstanding educational experiences our pupils have come to enjoy. Most of our events have historically been successful because of the overwhelming support of our parent and carer body; whether it be donating goods and services or volunteering to organise and volunteer at an event.
For the most up to date calendar of events please see the School Calendar
Below for an overview of our events.
Fireworks and Bonfire Night
Held on the School Field, this is one of FOWVIS’ largest fundraisers which also involves the local community. Whatever the weather, it is always fun – including a bar and barbecue, and items to buy for the children.
All aboard at Pirate's Landing in Camberley for a private party for children of the School. A popular event to celebrate the festive season.
Fun for the adults - join us for a quiz and test your general knowledge. Enjoy a drink or two and a bite to eat.
WVIS Families spend the night camping on the School Field. With games, supper, a bonfire and a cooked breakfast in the morning, this is always a fun and very popular event.
An informal social gathering for the entire family, the fair includes BBQ, drinks, games and a summery theme. This is a great family-friendly afternoon.
Held once every three years, this is a fabulous chance to dress up to the nines and have a fun night out whilst raising vital funds for the School.
Second Hand Uniform Sales
Our families kindly donate outgrown, nearly new and good condition uniform that FOWVIS then sells. Families can buy at anytime between the sales by contacting firstname.lastname@example.org – and can donate uniform via the School Office. More info here.
This fundraiser is a lovely gift for Christmas – each child draws their self-portrait which appears on their birthday month in the calendar along with class artwork, and useful school date reminders. If you happen to own your own business, the calendar also provides an excellent opportunity for advertising. Copies available to view upon request.
We have termly textile recycling collection days when you can bring in your unwanted clothes – this raises funds for the school.
We hold Cake Sales after the School singing year group assemblies (one per term). These are run by the Class Reps and are really popular. We welcome keen bakers to support each class but shop bought bakes are also very welcome.
Hugely popular, pre-orders are taken to buy boxes of Krispy Kreme doughnuts for collection at pick up. Individual doughnuts can also be bought without pre-ordering. Don't hesitate to get your orders in as well always sell out!
Each year FOWVIS has created a lovely keepsake for the children leaving the School in Year 2.
A popular event for the Year 2 leavers. A nice way to celebrate the end of their time at WVIS.
We have held mufti days in support of organisations such as SSAFA and other local charities. On a community level, we participate in village events including the Windlesham Summer Fete and Parochial Fair (with the super Teddy Bear Zip Wire!) at the St John the Baptist Church.
