Every family that joins St Mary’s Catholic Primary School is automatically welcomed as a ‘Friends of St. Mary’s member.
We support St Mary’s staff and children by helping out at school events and running fund raising events of our own in order to raise money for those extras for the children. There is no expectation put upon you as a member, but if you’re willing and able we would be extremely grateful.
Friends of St. Mary’s fully appreciate many of our parents work full time and all parents are very busy people. Although we do hold the occassional meetings (down the local pub), generally events are organised via e.mail. We invite individuals or groups of parents to suggest or take on particular projects with others contributing to them. We have found this a successful way of working and have run really successful events such as our Christmas and Summer Fairs, Christmas Lunch for the children, Year 6 Leavers’ BBQ, Bingo evenings and children’s discos, and above all, we have fun. We also organise the textile recycling for the school.
If you would like to help out in any way, large or small, please e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org or contact Mrs Beaumont in the school office.
