A massive THANK YOU to everyone who came and supported our Quiz Night in June at school.  It was a fabulous night and a huge success!  Thanks to all the FOTS members, parents, helpers and teachers who helped make the night possible as well as the hundreds of people and organisations who donated to the event as well.  We had amazing costumes, lots of laughs, very good quiz teams and a great night of fundraising for the school.  We raised just over $13,000.00 for our school and our children.  A big thank you to our main sponsor Russell Thomas from Barfoot and Thompson Torbay for sponsoring the night.

Save the date!  Sat 28th November for the new Spectre Bond Movie Night!


The Keep NZ Beautiful Week is an annual event that runs from the 14th to the 20th September and it is all about cleaning up your community.  Every year Barfoot & Thompson Torbay organise a ‘CLEAN UP TORBAY’ day where you can get involved.  All you have to do is give a couple of hours of your time to clean up the designated areas around our community – and at the end of it they have a sausage sizzle down at Long Bay Reserve.  The day will start out at the Barfoot & Thompson office in Torbay at 9.30am on Sunday 20th of September, but you will need to register first at or by contacting Russell Thomas on 027 673 6463.
