The Parents & Friends of St. John's School Association is made up of parents that are interested and prepared to help with fundraising events. If you have a child at St John's then you are automatically a member.
All parents are welcome to come along to our meetings and help us decide where the money we raise should be spent.
Thanks to everyone who came to our AGM last Thursday, our new committee currently stands as follows:
BAGS 2 SCHOOL
Have a clear out over half term! Next week your child(ren) will bring home a plastic sack that we would love you to fill with all your unwanted clothes and paired shoes. This all raises funds for the school. Please bring your bags 2 school at these collection times –
AUTUMN CAKE SALE
For donating, collecting, selling, buying and eating all the cakes. We made an amazing profit of around £200 and there were even a few left over to go to Nourish.
LOUD CLOUD RECEPTION WELCOME DISCO
Thank you to everyone who came, danced and had such a fantastic time. It was lovely to meet you all and welcome once again to the school. We raised a whopping £685 in the process - a brilliant result for a Saturday night out! Thank you once again to Bryony and Nicola for organising.
In other fantastic news, this week we received £1465 of match funding money (that's 2.35 per pupil!) from Fidelity. This is an amazing contribution to our little school charity for very little effort.
We'd love to hear from any parents or carers with contacts at companies who do match funding, such as Fidelity, Axa PPP or Aviva. Please, please drop us a line - It's all for the children.
PS. THANK YOU Fidelity!
Our next big event will be Fireworks night on Saturday November 4th. We will be asking for your help on the night, for first aiders and also the big fun tidy up the next day. Watch this space for more details.
