The Friends of St Michael’s Association exists to bring staff, parents and friends together socially in support of the school, working towards a common goal. In its time the Friends Association has raised thousands of pounds, which has been spent on equipment and resources to enhance our children’s education experience and the school’s facilities.
The Committee meet on the first Tuesday of every month during term time with smaller working groups meeting as necessary when we are planning larger events. Our Annual General Meeting is held at the beginning of the academic year and provides an opportunity for all parents and staff to come along and hear in more detail about the work of the Friends Association, the events we have run, the funds we have raised and how the money has been spent. It is also the occasion when we elect our new committee members.
We have a growing list of Friends Association volunteers who commit some of their time to helping the committee. Every little helps, so just one hour assisting at an event would be invaluable.
