Who are we?
The St Jude’s Parents and Friends Association are a group of (mostly) parents and other members of the school community who regularly get together to organise events and raise additional funds for the benefit of the school and the pupils. We are very excited to have just held our first face to face meeting for 2 years, and plan to continue to meet termly. We are always happy to welcome new members and to consider new ideas.
We understand that not everyone has the time to commit to regular meetings, and so have been working over the past few years 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 via our email address firstname.lastname@example.org
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. Although our fundraising activities have been limited during the pandemic, we have still been able to contribute to school projects, most recently supporting Year R in their need for good quality storage in their outdoor area. We also welcome each child joining Year R with a St Jude's bookbag, and more recently have begun the tradition of wishing out Year 6's farewell with a Leavers Hoodie.
Did you know we now have a facebook page?
To help us keep everyone up to date with what we are doing, we now have a facebook page. This is a private members only page which all current St Jude's parents are welcome to join. As well as posting events and requests for help, we also have a large stock of secondhand uniform which can be purchased through this page. If you would like an invitation please contact us via our email, or through the school office, with your name, your child's name and the name you use on your facebook profile.
