Friends Of The School

 We are the 'Friends of Saint John the Baptist School' 

The friends of the school are made up of teachers and parents, passionate about helping our school community.  We are a registered charity and raise thousands of pounds every year to enhance the education of the children at our school. We run a number of social and fundraising events throughout the year such as Christmas and Summer Fayres, Quiz Nights, Mother’s day breakfast and afternoon tea, Easter egg hunts, Film Nights and other activities which provide fun and laughter for all involved and raise money along the way.

Funds we have raised have been used to make a significant difference to the children, including contributions to school trips, buying books to promote reading, funding new PE equipment and providing Christmas and Easter treats for our pupils. These events also provide a great opportunity for families and school staff to get together and have fun.

 All parents of children at the school are automatically members of the Friends of the School and we would love you to get involved. We are a friendly and welcoming group and If you are interested in being part of this team, please either speak to the school office or ask for the contact details of Hilary Hand (chair)  Mrs F Crampton (link teacher) or please approach any of the committee members.

For the latest Friends of the School updates please see our website updates, or information given on the School’s weekly newsletter.

Santa's Sleigh Donation

 

 

To show our continued support for The Rotary club, they have kindly and generously donated over £300 to The friends of the School from the Santa's sleigh donations.

 

Saint John's were unable to help due to the route being cancelled due to the weather so we are overwhelmed by The Rotary club's kindness when including us when  dividing the money amongst the charities that were able to help this year. 

 

We look forward to supporting them in the future.
