Oldway School Fundraisers (OSF)

Meet the OSF Trustees!


Rachel Haime (Chair)


Hello, I’m Rachel, and I’ve just joined the OSF as the new Chair. My daughter Olivia is in Year 2 here at Oldway. I’m really looking forward to continuing the amazing work of all the OSF members who have gone before. I’m really excited to be able to help organise lots of fun events and activities for our children and at the same time continue to raise vital funds for our fantastic school.

In between being a busy working Mum, as a family we love being out and about, catching up with friends, spending time with our wider family and whenever we can, love to travel.
If (like me) joining the OSF is something you have been considering for a while - do it! Please get in touch! We’d love new members to join our small friendly group.








Anna Le Gallez (Treasurer)


My name is Anna and I have 2 daughters here at Oldway, Freya in Year 4 and Jasmine in Year 2. I have recently joined the OSF and have jumped straight into the role of Treasurer. I’m looking forward to help plan and organise lots of fun events at school over the next few years. We aim to raise some much-needed funds for Oldway to use to benefit the children. 


We are an animal obsessed family and love to keep ourselves active outside on the snow, sea and down at the beach with friends. 


I look forward to meeting lots of you at our planned events and hopefully gain some new OSF helpers in the near future.






Claire Sinclair (Events) 


My name Is Claire Sinclair and I have been part of the Oldway School Fundraisers since my eldest joined the school in 2012. I have really enjoyed being involved at various levels over the years, some I sat back and just received updates, others were more involved, and I enjoyed helping with all the activities and attending meetings where I could have a say. 


The latter years I have co-ordinated and overseen the Christmas Market and Summer Fair. I love events and having managed large-scale events as part of my hospitality career.  It’s very rewarding to lend my skills to help raise money for such a lovely school. My children have always loved me being a part of the school and over the years have really enjoyed helping out with baking and even selling this at the stall during the events. I have one child left at Oldway now, the other two have made the move to secondary: James is in year 9 at Churston Ferrers and Libby in year 7 at Brixham College. Evie is in year 4 and looking forward to her first school disco.


I have lots of hobbies; water sports, crochet, running, drawing, cooking and reading to name but a few. All of which I try and squeeze in between being mum and housewife, ‘mum’ being the favourite pastime of them all.



Becoming an OSF member

What does becoming a member mean?
We understand that some people may have concerns about joining the OSF, and we hope that by dispelling a few myths everyone will feel able to get involved in some way.
Do you have to attend all the meetings?
No you don't, you don't actually have to attend any. Whilst all of our members are of course welcome at any of our meetings, there are only a few members who are able to regularly attend. Joining the Fundraisers simply means you will receive regular e-mails or letters, which inform you of upcoming events, any help we are looking for, and how the funds that have been raised are being spent. It also gives you the opportunity to have your say, either through the meetings, or by contacting one of us by e-mail.
Are you expected to help at every event?
Definitely not, we really appreciate any help you are able to offer, and whether it is an hour at one event or a few hours spread throughout the year, it all helps us to provide more events and funding for the school and the children. We also, as working parents ourselves, understand how busy people’s lives are, and know that some members may find they are unable to help one year. We may ask for help, but we never expect it.
Do you have to be a school parent to become a member?
No, the main reason for changing our name from Parent and Teacher Association to Oldway School Fundraisers was to allow fathers, mothers, grandparents and extended family to join us. Do you know someone who would be interested in joining?
How can you help?
It is true that many hands make light work, and the more help we receive the more events we are able to hold. There are so many ways that anyone and everyone can get involved, either by helping us to organise an event, volunteering at the events whenever you can, or even helping us without leaving the house. Last term, a school Mum, secured £1000 in match funding from a bank, and a school Dad used his marketing skills to design our brilliant Christmas Fair poster. These things made a huge difference to our workload, and we are very grateful for their help.
We have also been lucky enough to have a small army of helpers, young and old, who came along to our events and leant a hand setting up, organising, selling, clearing away and everything else in between. We would not have been able to provide the children of Oldway school and their families with any of last year’s events without their help, and we would like to thank them all. I often get feedback from people who have volunteered to say they really enjoyed themselves, there is such a good atmosphere as everyone is there for a common cause.
