Friends of st Mary's School
Welcome to the FOSMS pages of the St Mary's website!
All parents automatically become members of our thriving Friends association, which is affiliated to the National Confederation of Parent Teacher Associations.
The main aims of FOSMS are:
To enhance children’s learning
To raise funds
To provide a social context for parents, carers and staff
Throughout the year we organise a range of events, important fund raisers, social evenings for parents, not to mention fun activities for the children!
The success of FOSMS is down to the continued support of parents and staff in volunteering their skills and time. We encourage all parents to get involved, either on a regular or occasional basis.
Below, you will find information about our meetings, events and, most importantly, how you can get involved!!
Update: Winter 2021 - the Corona Virus Pandemic has interrupted our usual social events and fund raising activities. We are still here, supporting each other and the school as much as possible in virtual ways. In December 2020 we held a very successful online Auction of Promises. We organised sales of christmas cards, designed by the children and a Christmas Decoration competition.
