Who Are We?

Friends of St Joseph's is a registered charity and a voluntary organisation. We also have a teacher representative and several committee members who are able to cast votes at meetings. Our meetings are held monthly and tend to be on a Tuesday after school. We hold a variety of fundraising events such as: summer fete, school disco and various raffle draws. Our fundraising has enabled us to provide the school with a much needed digital camera for every class, sun shelter, playground equipment and musical instruments for the children.
As well as fundraising, Friends of St Joseph's also gives the parents a chance to put their ideas forward, share their skills and develop relationships with other parents.
In April half term Claire Humphries from the FOSJ organised for a local business Tim's Gardening Services to come and clear the very overgrown garden area to the left and right of the pond. This took two days of very hard work, but I'm sure you will agree that it has made a huge difference to this area, opening up a fun new learning environment for the children to play and explore in.
Here are some before and after photos.

We had a very successful Summer Fun Day raising over £660 to help support and enhance our children's learning in school. Thank you to everyone who came along to support it.
It was a fabulous day and great fun was had by all. Have a look at the photos below.
Come back to see what we used the money for.
