Who are Friends of Tollgate School?

Friends of Tollgate School (FoTS) are an enthusiastic group of parents, community members, carers and school staff committed to raising funds to support our school.

Loose Parts Play Project

We need your help with the Loose Parts Play Project.
Please read about it in our request for help poster.

How do we do it?

We meet regularly to storm ideas for fundraising and how best to support the school. For a number of years there was no PTA at Tollgate Primary after the group of parents moved on. Our group was relaunched in early 2019. We encourage all parents to engage and participate in whatever way they wish to.

We plan, organise and host all FoTS events in collaboration with the school. We always need more help – could you help at an event? Do you have ideas for fundraising? Here are some of the common questions about FoTS.

We are currently raising funds to improve the playground equipment and play environment for our school. Our goal is to build on the great work the school has already done and improve the outdoor learning environment for our children and school community. This project is an ambitious one and proposals including costs are being put together. All our fundraising is working towards this objective. For more on our plans, you can read our Fundraising Plan.
