The ‘Friends’ of St Mary’s
The school has an active Friends’ Association. All parents, carers, grandparents and friends of the school community are actively encouraged to be a part of this group. The Friends’ committee organise a variety of social and fundraising events for both adults and children and this generates a considerable amount of money each year to spend on a range of resources for the benefit of all our children.
The Friends’ Committee usually meet once every half term and everyone is warmly invited to attend any Friends’ meeting.
The Annual General Meeting is held at the beginning of the new school year and we are always delighted to welcome new members to the team.
Elections to the committee take place at this meeting.
