On behalf of the Friends of St. Monica’s (FOSM) I would like to take this opportunity to extend a very warm welcome to you and to introduce ourselves.
Every parent or guardian whose child is attending St. Monica’s is automatically a member of the school’s Friends of St. Monica’s. The Friends of St. Monica’s is managed by a committee comprising of parent volunteers, teachers and Fr James, our Parish Priest, who are elected every year in October.
The primary role of the Friends of St. Monica’s is to provide an informal community and a primary communication line between parents, governors and school staff. The Friends of St. Monica’s is a registered charity and provides financial support to the school through a series of fundraising activities throughout the year. We host a number of regular fundraising and social events, such as school discos, Christmas bazaar, summer fete as well as special one-off events.
A simple way to help us to fundraise is to join our online easyfundraising community, where you can collect free donations for our school every time you buy something online. It won’t cost you a penny extra and joining is quick and easy, just click on the link here to get started.
Money raised by the Friends of St. Monica’s is primarily used to finance additional equipment for the school such as: CD players for classrooms, P.A. System for the school hall, laminators, cameras, new play equipment for the playgrounds and also various other expenses are covered that benefit the children and which are not normally funded by the school.
