Dear Parents/Carers,

I would like to introduce myself, Chrissy Charsley as the new chair of The Friends of St John’s Meads CE Primary School.

I have two girls, Sienna in Year 2 and Maya who is 2 years old. I also work and like all parents keep myself busy and would really appreciate any help and support to make things work. We have created a fantastic team of dedicated parents who are offering their valuable time to support the school, fund raise and arrange some fun events for all to enjoy.

We have also a great team of class representatives who will support events and will share communications and information via our class WhatsApp groups. If anyone wishes not to receive any communications from The Friends to conform with GDPR regulations please inform your class representatives. Alternatively, if you wish to be added please let your class rep know.

We would like to take this opportunity to welcome one and all back after a lovely summer break and to all new parents/carers. We would also like invite anyone to join the team. Our aim to have fun! Create some great family events, organise fun events for parents/carers and events that will put a smile on our children’s faces. We will help the school by raising funds to benefit our children. If anyone would like to be a class representative then please feel free to contact me or any of the team. Also, if you wish to support us at various events throughout the year, your time, skills and business contacts will always be appreciated. We cannot make these events happen without everyone’s help.

Last year, with everyone’s support and generosity we raised enough money to purchase iPads for each class, maths resources and a stage which will be used to enhance our children’s school performances. These fund raising activities are so important as they help fund equipment or activities the school would otherwise be unable to afford.
