Friends of St Michael’s
The Friends of St Michael’s have played a significant role in the
life of the school. All parents were automatically members of
the ‘Friends’ whose main aim is to support the learning
within the school by fund raising. Money raised has been donated to the school to purchase equipment it may not otherwise be able to acquire.
Over the years, the Friends have raised money to purchase a variety of items including computers, noticeboards, cameras, books and classroom rugs to name a few. Friends donated an impressive £3,500 towards the Green Games area in the Junior playground.
Unfortunately, the support from parents decreased markedly and in 2018 there were no volunteers to form a new committee. The existing members therefore took the difficult decision to wind up the 'Friends' and any monies belonging to the Friends will be paid over to the school once the legal formalities have been completed.
