Friends of St. Loys

Friends of St Loys

Friends of St Loys are a group of parents that have an interest in the well-being and future of St Loys. Friends meet once a term to discuss ways we can support the school. Our main aim is to organise school events and activities such as the Christmas Fair, Summer Fête, cake bakes, discos, BBQs, and other events that will capture the children’s imagination and create excitement whilst raising funds for the school.

Fundraising Events

Monies raised by our fundraising is used to help out the school by purchasing various items / equipment and paying for some activities for the children, e.g. IT equipment, new books for our Library, travel to and from the Christmas pantomime.

How you can help…

There are various ways to get involved and this could be regularly or just when you can – we understand that everyone has a hectic schedule to keep. You could:

  • Attend meetings (dates are advertised in the weekly school Newsletter).
  • Volunteer to help out with events
  • Support the Friends’ work on an occasional basis with any skills, expertise or equipment you can offer, e.g. access to printing facilities, sponsorship materials, prizes and contacts for fundraising.

If you would like to be involved, please let us know how by contacting the school office.

We are very proud to have supported the school with many events over the years, including;

  • World Book Day Breakfast
  • Rebel Raiser days
  • Seasonal Fayres
  • Disco’s
  • Movie Night
  • Sports Day cream teas
  • Cake bakes and second hand uniform sales

A truly special morning at St Loys celebrating all things books…and of equal importance, Family. Breakfast for all (thank you FRIENDS) and sharing our favourite books..

Autumn saw us donning our fancy dress costumes, tucking into a wonderful BBQ supper, trying our luck at Autumn themed games and Tombola and raising over £500. A wonderful Autumn Fayre and end to our first term.
