FXP will be holding a quiz night on Friday 27th September 2019 at 6pm.

Wanting to join us at the quiz, but not sure how??

It’s dead simple collect a form from either school (XP or XP east) office or from one of our great volunteers who hang around in the car park. They usually have an orange FXP Badge on.

Fill in your teams details, selecting any dietary requirements.

Return your completed form and £25 per team to either school office by the 19th of September. There can be up to 6 people in a team including children – all ages welcome!

Turn up at 6pm on the 27th of September, try to win and enjoy your pie and peas. Vegetarian option available.

Deadline for submitted forms to either office is Thursday 19th September (as school is closed Friday and Monday to students).

FXP Support for DofE

On the 12th of September, it’s the Duke of Edinburgh award evening for Bronze and Silver.

FXP commit every year to providing the funding needed to enable the kids to register to take part in this at the bronze level, this commitment is the largest of all our fundraising needs.

To continue this and to help provide refreshments on the evening we need 3 volunteers, either for the full evening or just for an hour to help set up or clear away.

Can you help? Drop us a message on our Facebook messenger and we’ll get back to you with what is involved.

Thanks in advance

Thanks to Tracy!

Tonight was Tracy Wain’s final event as Chair of FXP. I would like to take this opportunity to thank Tracy personally and on behalf of all of our students and their families for her tireless work in raising funds for our students.

This year, FXP have helped to raise money for 2 drum kits, amps, e-books for DofE, and this is in no small part down to Tracy and her dedicated team.

Tracy will still be helping out, but will be handing over the reins as chair.

Thank you Tracy for everything you have done!

 

As always, we would welcome any additional support that parents can give, even if just for one night a year. Please click on the link to FXP’s pages or their Facebook page to see how you could help or send the team a message.

Message from FXP

Good morning, we are in need of help! As you may be aware, FXP traditionally support the students in their POL/COL by providing refreshments, etc.

Next week there are 3 events, (Tue, Wed & Thur), however we are extremely short on volunteers, particularly the Thursday evening.

If we don’t have the support, we can’t support the evening itself. If you can spare any time at all between 5pm-7pm it would be very much appreciated!

Also if anyone would like to donate any baked goods to sell please contact FXP on their Facebook page by clicking here.

Thank you!

Message from FXP – Treasure Map update

We can confirm a closing date of 9am on the 27th APRIL for this competition.

We currently have 134 squares remaining at a cost of £5 a square with all proceeds being used to support the students’ expeditions. If you would like to take part, simply choose a letter A-T and a number 1-10 and send your details/payment in an envelope to the office FAO: FXP.

Top prize is return travel for 4 & car w/cabin to Shetland or Orkney courtesy of Northlink ferries, worth over £700! Other prizes include a suitcase, travel toiletries, Orkney Gin, Whiskey and chocolate. FXP members will be selling squares in the carpark after school once the Easter break has passed as well as at any COL that happen between now and the draw date.

Many thanks as always and please share/spread the word to those who may not be online.

Do you have books at home that are still in good condition but no longer needed?

Maybe you updated your bookshelves over Christmas or received some as gifts which you’ve already read?

Don’t leave them to gather dust in your rooms, gift them to us and let our students enjoy and engage with them over and over again!

From now until Easter, #FXP are asking for donations of any books, fact and fiction that are suitable for reading ages of 12+, although we are particularly in need of TEEN/YA material for our pupils in year 9 onwards!

If you have any books that you think will be suitable please bring them to school in a bag marked FAO: FXP and we will gratefully sort them for the library. Any that are deemed too young/too old will be passed on to local children’s hospitals/hospice and charities so that other children throughout Doncaster can also benefit from your kindness as well as some that will be resold at our events to help raise funds for new books that we will donate ourselves on your behalf, thereby creating our own book-cycle.

Don’t forget to share with your family & friends who may be able to help our quest too – your support genuinely does make such a difference!
