Friends of St Mary's

As the parent/guardian of a child at St. Mary’s you are automatically a member of ‘The Friends of St. Mary’s’.

The ‘ Friends’ work together to enhance the education of the children at the school, organising and running fund raising events and social activities, e.g. children’s discos.

They raise money annually and this goes directly to the school and is used for the benefit of the children.

Meetings are held half-termly or as necessary and all parents/guardians and those who wish to support our work on behalf of the children are invited to attend.

If you wish to get involved please give your name to Julie Eddison at the school.

Coffee Mornings

A coffee morning is held every Friday from 9.00am until 10.30am in the meeting room. This is organised by the ‘Friends’, many of whom stay on to make toast for the children in the juniors at 10p a slice. All volunteers are welcomed with as this is a very popular treat for the children and is a healthy alternative to ‘tuck’.  If you would like to volunteer please speak to the School Office.  A DBS check may be required dependant on your role.
