The Friends Association is a group of parents that has an interest in the well-being and future of St Loys. We meet once or twice a term (time and place are flexible).
The Friends’ principle 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.
