But what is SOCKS/SOKS?

Not a lot of parents realise what the SOCKS/SOKS stands for or what they do on behalf of our children. SOCKS is The Support Our Cambo Kids Association and with your support in developing and attending fund raising  initiatives we raise money to support children in school e.g we go to the theater in January, we have an Autumn fayre, meals etc!  Without their hard work and your support there is so much in school that we couldn’t do!!
