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 committee members are:
Sarah Robinson, Chairperson.
“I have two children at the school and this is my second year as chairperson. I feel so lucky to be part of such a great team; everyone brings enthusiasm and their own ideas. I love planning the school events, my favourite so far was definitely the Colour Run last May, everyone had so much fun and it was such a memorable occasion filled with colour and laughter. I believe great things can be achieved if everyone does just one little bit. I’m really looking forward to seeing what we achieve this year!”
Lisa Smith, Co-Chairperson.
“This is my second year as Vice Chair. I have really enjoyed helping to organise fun activities for the children and raising money to enrich their school experience further. I work for Cornwall Music Service Trust as a woodwind and piano teacher and I also run the St Uny Choir. My daughter Robyn is in Tehidy, my son Seb is in Poldark and our eldest George is in Godrevy.”
Kate Perkin, Secretary.
"My Son Jakob is in Kynance class. My working back ground is leading funded business start-up and leadership and management programmes."
“This is my second year on the committee. My husband and I have a daughter currently in Year One. Time at primary school is so short and I want to make a contribution to ensure that the experiences for all the children are as wonderful as they can be. I think it is important to support your local school and community and being part of the FOSUA means we can do this for the benefit of all the children and families. Giving a little bit of time is all it takes to make a difference.”
Lee Strickland, Treasurer.
“I’m excited to finally be an official member of FOSUA after helping out for the past couple of years. Myself and my husband have lived in Cornwall for 9 years and have two daughters at the school in Reception and Y2. I feel very strongly that an active, vibrant, PTA-Style organisation is indicative of a great school community and I want all the kids to benefit from the kind of added extras that FOSUA can provide - from clubs to trips to school equipment. Bring it on!”
Martine Hamilton, Vice Treasurer.
““My daughter is in Wheal Dream and my son is in Kynance. My background is Finance and I got involved in FOSUA both as a way to help raise funds for the school and also to meet other parents.”
