Events


Event Information 2017/18

Every year The Friends of St Mary’s will host a number of events, for parents, for children, and frequently both. These events are reviewed on an annual basis and all ideas are welcome. 

The Friends of St Mary's would like to thank the entire school community for their help and support over the past year. Together we have raised a massive £12,752 for the school!

The Friends will be holding their AGM in September (date TBC) where we will look over the events of the past year and make plans for the coming year. It would be great to see as many of you there as possible.
 
Have a wonderful summer break and we will see you in September.

A very big THANK YOU to all the parents, Friends representatives, and staff who give their time to make these events enjoyable and, equally important, financially successful.

Another big THANK YOU for all the support from the local business community, who help us with sponsorship for our various events. As a parent group we should try to support those businesses that help us.

Events to come for school year 2018/19 are as follows:

Your Ideas? Please contact us at Friendsofstmarysroyston@gmail.com 

If anyone has any feedback on previous events we are keen to hear from you. We want next year’s events to run even more smoothly and profitably than last year, so any constructive comments would be well received.
