The current Parents’ Association was formed in 1987 and supports St. Mary’s Preparatory School, Claremont House Nursery (Bright Sparks) and the Senior School. All parents and guardians of pupils attending the school and school staff are members of the Association.
Management of the Association is vested in a committee and officers of the committee are elected at the Annual General Meeting held during the Summer Term.
The objects of the Association are to:
(1) Encourage, promote and foster active co-operation between the parents and guardians of pupils, the staff and all others associated with the school.
(2) Protect and further the interests of the school, its staff and pupils, and to engage in activities that benefit the education and welfare of all pupils attending the school.
The Association meets some of its objectives by organising various functions and events and the funds raised from these events go to benefit all school departments and all pupils. This last school year over £10,000 has been allocated to numerous school projects including the purchase of playground equipment, computer hardware and software, interactive whiteboards, lockers, library equipment, sports and music equipment, and toys for the nursery.
In addition, the Parents Association have raised an additional £10,000 for the Prep ICT suite refurbishment through a Just Giving page.
All parents are welcome and we hope that you will support us by attending our functions or by offering assistance in any way you can.
