What does the FBA do?

Each year, the FBA has a programme of events. Some of these are regular annual dos – such as the Christmas Fair, the Summer Fair and Quiz Night.

However, each year new things come along. For instance, last year the FBA ran a joint Easter egg hunt with BISA (Balfour Infant School Association).

Also, a group of Balfour Junior parents recently set up a wonderful Farmer’s Bag project through the FBA where locally grown vegetables can be ordered then collected from the school on a Friday – a donation from each bag goes to FBA funds.

Where do the funds raised by the FBA go?

Money we raise is put towards school projects. These might be linked to specific curriculum areas or connected to extra-curricular activities. We also provide funds for equipment to enhance the children’s school experience and to support the staff in maintaining a fun, safe and exciting school environment. Examples of recent projects the FBA have funded include:

§ The wooden gazebos in the playground

§ A new projector and screen and a PA system for the school hall

§ New samba band instruments

§ Wet-play games

§ A shed for the school’s gardening club equipment
