Maendy Primary has a parent and staff group called Friends of Maendy. We meet once or twice a term to discuss how to raise funds for equipment and activities for the children that the school budget doesn't cover. In other words, the fun stuff.
We would love more members to help us run the school shop on Friday afternoons, help us staff the school discos and fete and suggest ideas for future events and activities. It would be great if we had more members on hand to make sure that parent/staff activity runs smoothly, raises money and is fun for the children (and hopefully for us!).
Just by having a child at the school you are already a member. You don't need to be elected or chosen. None of us were, we just showed up! You will be warmly welcomed and you may even get a free cuppa so you can enjoy the Friends of Maendy meetings in an informal atmosphere.
You will find the dates of meetings in the school newsletter, so keep checking. It's usually a Tuesday morning at 9.15am every six weeks or so. Just come and join us on the comfy blue chairs in the foyer after you've done the school drop off. You can be assured of a warm welcome.
What we do
We run the school reward shop for Years 1, 2 and 3 on a Friday afternoon. We help out at the summer fete and school discos and we bring new ideas to the table.
