Purpose

‘Friends’ of St. James’ exists to raise additional funds for the School and also to aid in promoting social interaction between parents. We aim is to assist parents in feeling part of the School community and to encourage social involvement whilst raising funds. Recently, the group have assisted the School in purchasing two new minibuses, which are used by every pupil across the year groups.

Constitution

The Friends of St. James’ is organised by a committee of parents/staff with a Chairman, Secretary and Treasurer. The AGM, where election to the committee takes place, is held each Michaelmas Term and all parents are invited to attend.

Activities

Annual events include: Christmas Fair, Summer Ball and the annual Quiz Night, giving parents the opportunity to meet other parents.

Upcoming Events for 2017

Quiz night in the Markham Hall, Golf Day at Laceby Manor, Ball, Summer Ladies Luncheon and the Summer Fair  are just a few of the fabulous events to come this year.

The Year so far …

The Friends of St. James’ group organises events to be enjoyed by parents, staff, children and friends of St. James’

Last term, events included the Halloween Party, Christmas Fair, Raffle and Wassail and as usual raised a fantastic amount of money. Thanks to all parents for supporting the event.

The new dining hall furniture also arrived and looks fantastic!

Becky’s aim as Chair this year is for the group to continute to grow in size in order to maintain healthy levels of income for the School. Also for the Friends of St. James’ to play a major part in the School’s future development, as ambassadors of the School.
