The Friends

FRIENDS OF ST JOSEPH’S CATHOLIC PRIMARY SCHOOL

 

Over the years, the Friends of St Joseph’s has been a committed group of parents and staff working hard to raise much needed funds for additional equipment and resources for pupils of the school.

The money raised last year has been used to purchase picnic benches for the playground and more reading books for the library. With our school budget squeezed ever tighter, fundraising organised by ‘The Friends’ and supported by parents and staff is vital in ensuring we can provide new equipment, books and experiences to enrich the school-life of our children.

We can’t do it without you.

We are in the process of re-launching the committee and are looking for new members and new officers.  You don’t have to be confident or outgoing.  But maybe YOU can bring something to The Friends of St Joseph’s.  You just need to have a desire to want MORE for your children.

Information about the Committee roles and responsibilities for Chair, Treasurer and Secretary are on the school website. However, don’t panic… a Committee also needs ordinary members, who will attend meetings, bring fresh ideas and help plan events. The Friends of St Joseph’s Constitution states that the committee is made up of these three roles and six other members. For the Friends of St Joseph’s to move forward, we need people who are willing to take on these roles.

Have a look at the school website and if you have any questions or need more information, you are welcome to pop in and see either Miss Dunne or Mrs Wilson.

Anybody interested in filling the Committee roles of Chair, Treasurer or Secretary should register their interest at the school office or by email (admin@sjna.uk ) by Thursday 3rd May, so that an AGM can be held for the parents and staff of the school to choose and vote in the new Committee. All parents and staff, as members of the Friends of St Joseph’s, will be invited to this meeting.
