Friends of John Mayne School

The Friends of John Mayne School is an active group of parents and members of the community who work together during the year to provide social events for children and parents and raise funds for the school. As a parent/carer you are automatically a member of the Friends of John Mayne School (PTA) and All are warmly encouraged to get involved.

Below is a list of events planned for this 2015/2016 academic year:

None of this can happen without the active participation of parents and volunteers. We know from experience that taking part brings with it a fantastic sense of satisfation in making a difference for the children. Children love the fact that their parents are involved and there is a strong sense of pride and belonging to the community.
