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.
In 2017 OISA raised over £8000 which contributed towards the cost of the new smartboards in Years 1 and 2.
In 2018 OISA raised £7500 which has partly funded the refurbishment and extension of the Apples and Pears outdoor learning area.
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. Please let us know if you can help.

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
