  • What do we do?

    The Friends of St Monica's is a registered charity that raises funds for St Monica's school. The committee meets at the Parish Centre a couple of times each term to discuss past events and plan forthcoming ones. We aim to host an array of events throughout the year with something to appeal to everyone: from quiz nights to the golf day and children's discos. Our key fundraisers are the Christmas Bazaar held in December and the Summer Fete which is in the last term. Just by being a parent you are a Friend of St Monica's but new members are always welcome on the committee.

Where does our money go?

The key goals for fundraising in 2009/10 have been to replace the reading books for Years 1 and 2 and to purchase new interactive whiteboards for the Juniors.

In recent years, the Friends have raised a huge sum of money for the major redevelopment of the junior, infant and reception playgrounds. This including the building of new infant climbing equipment, a shaded pergola and the wonderful ampitheatre.

These projects all benefit the pupils greatly but at some expense. The school wouldn't be able to make these regular improvements without all of our help, so please look at the forthcoming events and see if you can help to support our fundraising efforts over the coming year. Thank you.
