FoSM (Friends of St. Mary’s) is our school’s Parent Teacher Association. We provide an opportunity for all parents and teachers to work together towards raising funds and supporting our school. The aim is to do it in a fun and enjoyable way which encourages social interaction between the three sites.
Each year through various events we aim to:
- Raise funds to help the school fund – library books, online educational resources, classroom resources, maths games, revision books, reception water bottles, playground equipment, computer equipment, day trips and one off purchases such as trim trails, fish tank, educational classroom carpets and many many more.
- Run social events and fund raisers for parents and children – quiz & curry night, Christmas Fair, Summer Fair, Easter Egg hunts, FoSM party nights and cake sales.
The school greatly benefits from the additional funds we raise and the increased opportunity for parents to be more involved in school life is invaluable.
All parents can get involved even if they only have a small amount of time available, from being a class representative to helping out at school fairs to supporting our events.
We have a small committee which is always looking for new ideas and for enthusiastic parents to be involved in the various roles, such as chair, vice-chair and treasurer or face painting, raffles, artwork and silent auctions.
Please get in touch with us if you are able to help in any way or have any ideas – we welcome all contributions!
