Parent Teacher Association
The Friends of St Johns organise social and fundraising events to raise money for extra equipment and activities, thereby enhancing the opportunities offered to the children at St John’s. This is done by a regular programme of events such as a summer fair, quiz, sponsored activities and cake sales. We have a committee and every parent can become a member once their child starts school.
The Friends have meetings each term to discuss events and think up new fun ideas in which everyone can participate. The money that they raise goes towards lots of different types of resources and equipment, including computers, software, books and outdoor play equipment. It also helps subsidise class trips that the children enjoy so much.
Some of the events are hard to organise, but a willing band of helpers always makes things easier and more fun. There is always the satisfaction of knowing that you are benefiting not only St John’s but your children too.
Newsletters will keep you informed about the wide range of events that take place and a copy is also displayed on the outdoor display board.
We are always in need of willing helpers and any support that you could provide would be most welcome. If you want to find out more about St John’s Friends or would like to get involved, please contact the school office for more details or join our Facebook page.
