Who are we?
The St Jude’s Parents and Families Association are a group of parents and friends who regularly get together to organise events and raise additional funds for the benefit of the school and the pupils. We meet roughly once a month, usually at 7.30pm in the school staff room. Exact dates can be found on the newsletter, PFA noticeboard and here on the website. New members and ideas are always welcome.
We understand that not everyone has the time to commit to regular meetings, and so have been working over the past academic year to try to build up a bank of volunteers who we can call on for specific events, such as discos or the summer fair. If you think this could apply to you then we'd love to hear from you. We can be contacted at any time either via the Main Office (and leave a message) or via our email address firstname.lastname@example.org
Our first meeting of the year will be held on 25th September 2019, at 7.30pm in the staff room.
What do we do?
We see our role as a mixture of fundraising for those additional extras which are not available in the school budget, and organising activities which are sociable and fun. In the previous few years we have raised money towards the new Key Stage 1 kitchen, as well as helping purchase equipment and food for the school chickens, supporting the new uniform changeover with some subsidies towards the cost, funding forest school sessions and author visits. We could not do this without the support of teachers, parents and pupils in attending events and spending your money.

Our festive shopping evening is one for the grown ups, following our very successful Ladies Night last year. We are currently looking for stall holders, so if you think that applies to you then please get in touch.
Our first meeting this year is booked for 25th September, 7.30om in the staff room.
New members are always welcome. Not everyone makes every meeting, so don't be put off if you can only come to some. All help is always gratefully received, so if you haven't been before we look forward to meeting you.
