Welcome to the Friends of St Mary’s Church of England Junior Academy.
Everyone becomes a ‘friend’ of St Mary’s when their child joins our school. We are lucky enough to have several of our friends who either sit on the committee or volunteer at the many events we hold.
During the last year we have had successful School Discos, Children’s Bingo, Summer Fair, Christmas Fair and a joint event with the BREAK charity where the children took part in a fashion show. We have also added a clothes recycling bank in the school grounds which will help the children learn to recycle as well as raise funds.
We try to raise funds for the school to be able to purchase equipment that they wouldn’t normally be able to afford. We are currently trying to raise funds for the children to be able to have a set of i pads. In the past we have purchased an outdoor stage area, cameras for every class, refurbished the library and paid for the children to go on exciting trips such as the whole school Royal Norfolk Show visit.
If you wish to join the Friends committee we normally have meetings once every half term on a Tuesday night. You will be made to feel very welcome if you decide to join.
