Friends of St Bede's
The Friends of St Bede’s are a highly committed group of parents.
We organise events, such as the Christmas Fayre, annual Quiz Night and organise provision of refreshments at a number of school events throughout the year.
The aim of the Friends is twofold: social inclusion in the school and raising much-needed funds to support the work of St Bede’s and to enhance the lives of the children at the school, raising cash to support the work of St Bede’s.
Parents interested in joining the Friends, or looking for more information should email the chair, Debbie Hay. Please use the contact form (choosing 'Friends of St Bede's School' from the drop down)
Making a difference
Funding requests amounting to more than £800 from various school departments were agreed at the latest meeting of the Friends of St Bede’s.
Languages, textiles, art and the library will all benefit from the purchase of voice recorders, a chrome box, a digital camera and books for Year 7 pupils.
Debbie Hay, Chair of the Friends, said 'requests were received once a term from staff and pupils once they had been discussed by the senior leadership team at the school. ‘This is always the best part of our committee meetings where we can actually agree to give some of the money raised at our events back to the school. These items are all beyond the school’s diminishing budget, but make a big difference to all the pupils.
Thank you to everyone who supports the Friends and makes this all possible.’
Due to its high popularity and many requests, we are holding a quiz night earlier than usual in the school year and it may become a bi-annual quiz night. We hope you will bring your friends along and join us for what always promises to be a really fun evening. It is a really great way to feel involved in the school and get to know other parents too.
Tickets can still be paid for online (there will be a list - not an actual ticket).
We look forward to seeing as many people as possible.
