FrOGS is the parents' organisation, and does a great deal of excellent work to support the school. All parents are automatically members of FrOGS. Meetings are held in the school's staffroom about once a month and everyone is welcome to attend. It is intended that meetings are informal but business like.
This year's BBQ was a very busy event with lots of parents and families out to enjoy themselves and the rain managed to hold off! During the event pupils from Year 4 ran stalls with games devised by the younger classes and the Country Dance group performed a wide range of dances, including one with audience participation! We were fortunate to have the involvement of Ilminster Football Club and music was provided by the Gibbins family who entertained the crowds all evening. Our thanks go to all who volunteered and the many local businesses who donate raffle prizes. Overall the event raised over £2,600 to fund projects for the pupils.
Remember the swimming pool will be available to hire after Easter through to the end of October, please see our swimming pool page for details.

Each year, FrOGS raises a great deal of money to help with providing extras for the school. Without their work the children would not have such a good environment to work and play in, or have such good resources.
The most recent purchases are £3000 spent on fiction books and £750 spent on samba drums. The children will get great benefit from both.
Below are some examples of how FrOGS has helped in recent years.
