Friends of St Bede's
The Friends of St Bede’s are a highly committed group of parents and we welcome you to join us.
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.
If you would like to be a part of a fun parent helper group and would like more information, please 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.’
In 2018/19 the Friends of St Bede's have held a Christmas Fayre and Quiz night and have provided refreshments at events such as Act I/II and the Beauty and the Beast performance and so many more.
