50/50 club or school lottery

We are thinking of running either a 50/50 club or a school lottery and would like your thoughts on this. We are running a poll on our social media, please let us know what you think on Twitter or Facebook.

A 50/50 club (run by FABSS) would cost £1 per month, 50% of profits would go to FABSS, 50% make up 3 monthly prizes. There would be an option to purchase more than one stake to increase you chances of winning. There would be a minimum yearly subscription of £12. The set up of this is still under discussion but as an example, if we had 100 people in the club. £50 would go to FABSS (per month) and the prizes would be
1st £25
2nd £15
3rd £5
Obviously the more people in the club, the larger the prize money would be.

A school lottery (run by external company) would cost £1 per week, 40% of money goes to FABSS. The prize money has not been specified but would relate to number of members.

Opening of the BSJ Outdoor Classroom

Our Outdoor Classroom by children from BSJ

We got our outdoor classroom
It really is a treat
A lovely place to sit and learn
A smashing area to meet

We got our outdoor classroom
A stunning sight to behold
That is until the parents gather
Using it to shelter from the cold

We got our outdoor classroom
A way to escape the gloom
That awaits us every day
In the same old classroom

We got our outdoor classroom
Although we sometimes wear a coat
It’s never rained so much that we
Would ever need a boat

So yippee, woohoo, horray for us
We’re lucky to have our amazing FABSS crew
They really are a helpful bunch
They’ll do anything for me and you!
