Friends of St Uny

Friends of St Uny Academy (FOSUA) is an organisation run by parents and supported by staff, relatives and other members of the local community. Its role is to encourage closer links between home and school, fundraising work, but it also has a useful social function. 
Fundraising events provide an opportunity for parents, staff and pupils to get together and achieve great things while having lots of fun. 
We are fortunate to have a great team of helpers at our events and in our general committee.

The main committee team are:
 
Sarah Robinson - Chairperson
"My son Edward is in Year 2, Kynance, and my daughter Florrie will be in reception class in September.
I have my own sewing business, I co-run and am secretary at St Ives Sling Support and I am also a personal care assistant.
I am excited to be a part of the team of the FOSUA and I believe great things can be achieved with enthusiasm and a strong team.
I am very interested in supporting the local community inside and outside of school."

Lisa Smith - Vice Chairperson
"I have two sons; George is in Godrevy and Seb is in Tehidy. My daughter Robyn hopes to join Reception in September. I was formerly a Head of Music and Performing Arts before joining Cornwall Music Service Trust in 2018 as a Woodwind and Piano teacher. My love for the Arts and organising events inspired me to join this fantastic committee."

Kate Perkin - Secretary
"My Son Jakob is in Carn Brea and my step-son Oliver is in Wheal Dream. My working back ground is leading funded business start-up and leadership and management programmes."

Cora Newton - Treasurer
I am Step mum of Ruby in Y1/2 Poldark class. I have been a general committee helper since Ruby started school. 
I am studying for a Diploma in Health & Social to lead on to a nursing degree.
I'm looking forward to having some great events over the year."

Helen Gill - Vice Treasurer
"I’m a Headteacher in Truro and delighted to be supporting the school now that my daughter Soreni has started in the lovely Carn Brea class."

For the year ahead we are already planning a colour run, a circus and a summer fayre. We are interested in trying new events and activities to ensure the children gain a wide experience in their school life.

We are currently fundraising towards an outdoor classroom for the lower end of the school field, we believe outdoor learning is very important for young people and would be a huge advantage for the school. We are nearly at our target!

Everyone is welcome to join us at the FOSUA and we are always keen to grow our team; whether you wish to be an occasional volunteer, can offer fundraising support or if would like a bigger role such as a class representative please speak to us!
