Thursday 22nd Sept:

Friends of St Ursula’s E-ACT Academy

The Friends are a group of ordinary parents and teachers who get together to do extraordinary things.
An informal meeting was held on Thursday 15th September to discuss the formation of a fundraising group. Many issues were raised, in particular, the principal aim of the group.
In the past, the Friends purchased cameras, benches, refurbished the Refectory, and paid for school trips. In order to set up a group to fundraise for the new Academy, we would need a committee; a chairperson, a secretary, a press secretary, and a treasurer.
The committee will generate ideas for new events and decide on how the money they raise will be spent. Some parents may decide to help out at an event from time to time, some may prefer to provide a raffle prize or just attend an event.

Would you like to get involved?
Perhaps you would like to job share a position with a friend.
Historic events have included:

  • Summer Fete
  • Christmas Fayre
  • Casino Night
  • Quiz Night
  • Ladies Pampering Night
So how could you get involved?
If you would like to take on a position such as:
  • Chair
  • Secretary
  • Treasurer
  • Press Secretary

Please email Jane McKimm on Jane will create a ballot form and issue it with the bulletin on Friday 23rd September.
We will diarise a meeting for Thursday 6th October, the time to be confirmed.
Attending ‘The Friends’ will give you a chance to meet other parents, discuss ideas, or just see what goes on behind the scenes. There doesn’t have to be a great time commitment. The more people involved, the easier it will be.

Kind regards,

Lynette Carter
