Friends of SFIS was set up as a charity to fundraise for South Farnborough Infant School. The Friends are made up of the school’s parents and guardians who work as a Committee to raise money through events and other fundraising activities.
In 2017/18 the money raised went towards a brand new teaching kitchen for the school, now fully operational. We also continued to subsidise school trips across all year groups. This year we would like to raise funds for a large playhouse and a sheltered sandpit to which all the school will have access during their outdoor playtime.
We run a number of popular events throughout the year such as Elf Day, Movie Nights and the Summer Fair, to name but a few, as well as regular cake sales. We aim to make these events interesting and inclusive for all the children. We also hold regular book sales and host several Quiz Nights for parents, guardians, friends and family members.
We are always looking for volunteers with fresh ideas and enthusiasm. Regular meetings are held at The Squirrel and if you would like to be involved with the committee please contact us:

If you don't wish to be on the committee but would like to help out at any of the events, please do still get in touch.
A few years ago Class Reps were introduced to help improve communication between parents and the school. Please see below for details of your Class Rep who will help pass on information about school activities, fundraising and other organised events.
Any questions, suggestions or feedback please contact a member of the Friends committee.
