Orchard Infant School Association
OISA (Orchard Infant School Association) is the parents association that supports the school by arranging fund raising activities.
In 2016 OISA purchased a set of IPAD's for use in class.
We are currently looking at bigger projects to fund, so there will be lots more fund raising activities coming up.
All events need volunteers to help organise and run them. An hour or two of your time is invaluable to us.

OISA Fathers Day Wraproom
Our OISA Fathers day wraproom takes place on Friday 9th June 2017.
Please hand your slips and money to the school by Tuesday 6th June.
Dance, Dance, Dance
For our next event, we are planning a sponsored dance on Friday 31st March. All children will join in, and during the afternoon we will be teaching them a short routine which they will perform for the teachers and helpers. To add to the fun it will be a non-uniform day, so your child/children can put on their best dancing gear ready to boogie!
Obviously the aim of the day will be to make as much money as possible for the school, so your generous donations will be gratefully received. Please sponsor your child for whatever you can afford .. an amount per minute, per dance or a fixed donation if you prefer.. and if you are eligible for gift aid remember to tick the box so that we can claim an extra 25% too - Please see attached sponsorship form.
Many Thanks in anticipation,
The OISA Committee
OISA Christmas Fayre 2016
We would like to say a big thankyou to everyone for supporting the OISA Christmas Fayre on 25th November 2016.
The event raised a massive £1706 for OISA, who fundraise for Orchard Infant School. The children had a very exciting time playing the many games on offer, and of course meeting Santa in his grotto.
We would also like to thank all the volunteers who helped make the fayre possible, including manning the stalls, selling raffle tickets, wrapping prizes, helping to tidy up afterwards, and of course a huge thankyou to the to the generous people and businesses who donated prizes for our raffle.
