Friends of St Wystan’s
The Friends of St Wystan’s are a group of parents and staff fuelled by enthusiasm and cake!
The events and initiatives they organise and establish are constantly evolving as the school grows and they are always open to new recruits and suggestions.
A further vital element in the Friends’ work is enabling Form Friends, a useful and helpful point of contact for questions parents may have. Each Form has a Form Friend – a point of contact regarding organisational matters, ensuring parents receive key information and reminders. Remembering everything can be daunting and so Form Friends have been established as a way of helping with this.
The Friends of St Wystan’s support the school in a variety of ways, such as organising second-hand uniform sales, providing refreshments at events, arranging pupil discos, parent quizzes and a great many fund raisers which are thoroughly enjoyed by the school community.
Meetings are held regularly. However there is no expectation of how much time a St Wystan’s Friend should volunteer. People may be unable to attend meetings in the evening yet can help and support other events in a variety of ways. Any help, no matter how great or small, is always genuinely appreciated.
