Friends of Battle Abbey School
The FOBAS Committee is a group of parents from Nursery, Prep and Senior School; they meet once or twice per term and help organise a variety of events held at Battle Abbey School for parents, staff and friends. The money raised during these events is used to fund items that do not fall under existing educational or facilities budgets and promise to enhance the school experience, helping to improve educational or social outcomes for children in the school.
Recently purchased items include:
• A 'Mud Kitchen' for the Nursery
• Cameras for classes to use to record events, trips & activities during the school year
• New bags for storing tents for Duke of Edinburgh Awards
• Display board in the Abbot's Hall for Duke of Edinburgh Gold recipients
• Netball dresses for School teams
• Keystage 3 Library resources
• Children's Entertainers at the Big Picnic
