The Friends of Our Lady’s
Why do we have The Friends?
The Friends of Our Lady of Lourdes School raises funds to help fund school activities and projects, as well as purchasing items which make the children’s learning environment more fun and attractive. As an added bonus, The Friends events give everyone the chance to have a great time while raising money!
The Friends Committee
The Friends committee meet once a term to plan upcoming events and come up with ideas for new events. We are always looking for new members with fresh fundraising ideas.
Here are some examples of fundraising events The Friends have run in the past: Spring Ball, Family Disco, Christmas Shopping Evening, Movie nights, Bingo, Summer fete and Cake sales.

How we spend the money we raise?
The money raised is used to fund ‘extras’ for the children and also to pay for items that will enhance our children’s education.
In the past, we've funded: iPads and educational apps, the Christmas pantomime, crackers for all the children for Christmas dinner, team prizes for end of term, Literacy and Maths activity days and Teachers' Requests.
What is our next project?
The Friends work with teachers, pupils and parents to decide what to purchase with the money raised. The next major purchases include help towards funding an Artist in Residence and taking the children to the Christmas pantomime. We would also like to buy additional iPads and an iPad server.
How can you get involved?
We would like to invite all parents to become involved and support in some way. We are always looking for help so if you could offer The Friends some of your time, however small, we would like to hear from you! And of course come along to our events!
