Friends of St Joseph’s

The school is extremely well supported by its enthusiastic  ‘Friends of St. Joseph’s’. Working tirelessly alongside staff and children they not only raise valuable funds for the school but also strengthen links between school, parish and the wider community.

How can you help?

The FOSJ are always looking for new members. If you can give up some of your time to support your child’s school, please get in contact with either Claire Airey or Vicki Anthony or alternatively contact the school office.  It’s a great way to meet new people and be involved in the school community. If you’d like to be involved, please contact Claire Airey, 07754252935 or friendsofsj@outlook.com.

Class Reps

Thank you to everyone who has volunteered to be a class rep:

Anyone can be a member of the FOSJ, you don’t have to join as a committee member or even as a class rep but just helping out no matter how small would be great.

Could you sell raffle tickets, help at discos or on a stall at the Christmas Fair or even just help setup or promote the events?

Is anyone a graphic designer, in marketing or advertising that could help us, can you face paint or make lovely crafts? Please let us know.

If not, just your support and attendance of the events would be great!

My message to the new committee and to you busy parents is Family, Work, FOSJ.  We have to strike a happy balance and the more volunteers we have the more we can share the load.

School projects

The FOSJ have recently been in discussion with Miss Milivojevic and the school governors and we are wanting to support the school in developing the ICT suite. It will enable the school to continue to provide the very best facilities and learning experiences through technology.

Alongside raising money for this we will also be continuing to provide our children fantastic learning opportunities through workshops and visits and we will keep you up to date with all these events.

We are also keen to help support the school in developing their resources for each curriculum area—mainly through books. More information on this will come in the year.
