About Us 

Friends of St. Mary's

The Friends of St Marys, now known simply as The Friends, are a small community of volunteer parents who organise events in order to raise funds to support the children and initiatives within the school. The Friends also arrange charity events and are keen to do more to support local charities further enriching the ‘helping others’ culture at the school.

The past 12 months have been a time of change and refection for many, so we have held right back in terms of fundraising activities and face to face events.  However we have been using the time as an opportunity to take stock, and while working with the school and within Covid guidelines we are standing by to come back next school year with renewed enthusiasm.
If you would like to join the Friends community, and any level of volunteering is warmly welcomed, please contact the current chair, Frances by email:
Meanwhile, they say a picture paints a thousand words – here are some things the friends have supported within the last 12 months.

These have come from the annual donations to the classes, and from funds raised by from events run by the Friends with support from the parents.

Little extras for F2 trip to Gunsgreen House;
Traditional board games for F7;
