Friends of St Michael’s
The Friends of St Michael’s Group was formed in September 2014. The aim of this group is to offer help and support to the Principal and Staff of St Michael’s Primary School in other areas outside of teaching. The primary function of the group is to form a fundraising campaign to raise money to enable St Michael’s to obtain items or provide trips for the children that can no longer be met from the normal school budget. The group also provides help in the areas of maintenance and decoration on the outside of the school and also helps with the organisation of the Christmas Play and various other events that take place within the school year.
The Friends of St Michael’s encourages all members of the community to support our school and welcomes new members. Please contact Mr John White or Mrs Angela Doyle (Chairperson of Friends of St Michael’s PS) for more information.
