Our active and committed PFA Committee continue to work closely with the school staff to organise a range of family and children's events to bring the community together and help raise funds for the school. The PFA committee meet regularly with Mrs Wilson to plan events and the staff team and parents and carers actively support the work of the PFA both in helping to organise events and coming along on the day to help and enjoy the event. Please see the thank you letter from the PFA Committee Chairs sent home at the end of the summer term 2017.
Summer Fair 2017
The annual Summer Fair is the school and PFA's biggest fundraiser and a popular event for the school and local community. Highlights in 2017 inlcuded go-karts, a raflle full of amazing prizes and fabulous international food donated by parents and friends of the school. Thank you to everyone who helped on the day or in the run up to the event which once again proved to be a great day for the community of St. Mary of the Angels School.
The PFA organise an annual event to celebrate the diverse cultures represented in our school community. Our Taste of Africa and the Caribbean Day on Saturday 23rd April 2016 was a great success: the school community came together to celebrate African and Caribbean food, donated by our wonderful parents and friends of the school, music and dance. This event built on the success of our Portuguese and Brazilian Spring Fling in 2014 and our Italian Spring Fling in 2012. Every other year sees the school community come together for an International Day with the help of the whole school community.
Our termly 'Movie Nights' are a very popular event with our children (and parents who don't have to collect their children until 6pm!). The next Movie Night is on Friday 1st December and the theme will be Christmas, of course! The PFA will be organising a team of parents to make and serve the delicious, homemade popcorn and drinks at the interval while the staff supervise the children as they enjoy the film.
