Friends of St Mary's School
Welcome to the Friends of St Mary's School (previously PTA) page. When your child starts at St Mary's you automatically become, and will always be, a Friend Of, it's up to you how much you can or want to be involved from here.
Together, we aim to support each other through our children's time at the school, organise events and extra curricular activities, and raise valuable funds to help support the school, the children and their school experience.
Money raised buys:
•sports kit & outdoor equipment
•trips and excursions
•postage costs for charity shoe boxes
Regular events include:
•Autumn & summer discos
•refreshments for plays, concerts & sports events
•nearly new uniform shop
Fresh ideas we're considering:
•family film night
•any other fundraisers?
Other ways to raise funds
Friends of St Mary's (PTA) is a registered charity so we can claim Gift Aid on any donations, entry fees and collection pots. Simply complete a Gift Aid form (just once for the whole time your child is at the school) and we can collect 25p for every £1 you donate helping to top up the pot.
