We are always looking for new members and new ideas.  Everyone is welcome.

Simply come along to a meeting or contact the school office who can put you in touch with the chairperson. 


What do we do?

  • Meet with school management / staff discuss relevant school issues
  • Raise funds
  • Allocate the money we have raised
  • Plan and organise seasonal parties / discos
  • Take a role in school recruitment

Each year we organise one major fundraising event, in the past this has been the Christmas Fayre.  The funds from this event are then used to support the school and the children.
