Welcome from the friends of Mendip school


The Friends of the Mendip School Association is a newly formed committee made up of parents and teachers of the school. We come together once a month, usually on a Thursday morning to discuss how we can contribute to fundraising, help with events and support our school. We are also working on evening meeting times too to include as many parents as possible – watch this space!

We held our first fundraising ‘brainstorming’ meeting on the 16th March at which we discussed many exciting ideas to raise money for various projects happening at the school. We are currently working on the school launch party in May, and collecting donated clothes in bags that will be sent home soon. Please look out for the collection bags and start collecting those unwanted clothes, all proceeds go towards the school!

If you would like to join in with the committee’s work please come along. As a parent/carer of children at the school you are automatically included in our membership so please feel welcome to come along and contribute. We understand that life is pretty hectic for parents, so if you are unable to attend meetings, the committee members names are below..we are open to feedback and new ideas so please get in touch!

We are all focused on working together to help us improve or add to our school’s great resources and look forward to updating you with our progress soon.
