Friends Of School
Who are the Committee?
Chair: Vicky Dowling
Secretary: Lucy Young
Treasurer: Janette Bawden
How are they elected?
The committee are elected democratically as per the PTA regulations. We are a friendly and fun bunch who meet at school to discuss a variety of topics, but largely we work on the next event and scratch our heads as to what clever plan we can cook up to put more money in the till!
What are the aims of the Friends?
Our main mission is to ‘Involve the Community’ in order that we can rally support from contributors other than just parents and guardians of the school.
To have fun and do a little good!
Support the extra budgetary requirements of the school.
