FOPS (Friends of the Oratory Preparatory School) is the parent Association for the Oratory Prep School. It is run by Oratory Prep parents in conjunction with staff and is a totally voluntary organisation.
FOPS has three key objectives:
It has four key officers – a chair, vice chair, treasurer and secretary. It has a committee – comprised of reps from each year group and some teachers as well as other parents who sit on the committee. The four key officers and committee are voted in at an AGM each year. The reps volunteer themselves at the beginning of the Summer term in order to take over from September.
You too can get as involved in FOPS as you like, giving as much or as little time as you feel appropriate. Parents who do give their time all seem to have similar reasons for joining in. It’s an opportunity to meet both staff and parents from outside your own children’s year groups – and to give something back. It’s both enjoyable and rewarding.
It’s undeniable that parents, children and staff enjoy the events organised by FOPS. The intention behind them all is to have some fun, while often also raising money for good causes whether within or outside of the School. If you would like to help FOPS in any way or if you have any feedback, please contact FOPS via the school office.
