Friends of Newark Academy
The Friends of Newark Academy (FONA) is an informal committee whose members give their time to help organise and run fundraising events/activities throughout the school year, making extra money for equipment and resources that the school needs.
The purpose of FONA is to support the staff, school and obviously, most importantly, the students. This is achieved through fund raising to help the school to purchase additional educational and recreational materials and also planning social activities for the students including our very successful Year 11 proms.
Last year FONA helped to run many events for the benefit of the school. The money raised has helped to fund many things, including rugby posts, participation in the Lessons from Auschwitz programme, gardening equipment and much more!
FONA are always keen to meet new members to assist with organising and running events. Offering your time (or a skill you have) before events or at occasions through the year is invaluable. FONA could not achieve what we do without the behind the scenes support that is offered.
The Committee meet on a regular basis usually once or twice per term. If you are interested in joining please pass your information to the school office or email our school link Katie Vause (School Leader) firstname.lastname@example.org
Please continue to offer your support – New members and suggestions are always welcome.
