Friends of Monkwick
Welcome to Friends of Monkwick, our parent/carers group.
We are fortunate at our school to have a parent/carers group that is an integral part of the school community. We aim to raise money which will be spent on equipment and resources to enhance our childrens’ education experience and the school’s facilities.
Our group is also so much more than simply fundraising. Friends of Monkwick exists to provide closer links between home and school. It is an excellent way to bring staff, parents and friends together socially in support of the school, working towards a common goal. It is fun too – just ask any of the Committee members or ‘FoM helpers’ – and with the continued support of parents and staff, ‘FoM’ will go from strength to strength.
All parents and members of the school community are encouraged to get involved, even if they only have a small amount of time available. All families automatically become members when their child joins our school.
The group is extremely conscious of the ethos and diversity of our school, and we try very hard when organising and planning events to respect this.
To sum up:
- we are a group of parent/carers who meet regularly to exchange questions and ideas between parents and school staff.
- it is an opportunity to organise exciting fundraising events.
- take part even if you only have a small amount of time available
- all parents / carers are warmly welcomed.
So please join us at our meetings which are held the second Tuesday of the month at 2pm, refreshments will be available.
