PAFS stands for “Parents, Friends and Carers of St Johns” and we are a group of mums, dads and friends of the school who meet to organise the school’s main fund-raising events. These include regular favourites such as the Christmas and Summer Fayres, Quiz Nights and children’s disco’s and new events – the Beauty and Bubbles night held in the spring term was something new that we have added to the calendar.

As well as providing memorable occasions which the school family can share in we also raise much needed funds for the school. Some of the money supports smaller projects, such as Easter eggs and hoodies for the Year 6 residential trip, while there are also the larger projects that we work towards. We have recently contributed to the renovation of the Mall, ensuring that our children are working in a modern and inspiring environment.

We would love you to get involved with PAFS and help to raise valuable funds to benefit the children. We always welcome new faces and fresh ideas on our committee and we appreciate help at main events whether this be manning a stall for an hour, wrapping presents for the lucky dip or offering a skill such as baking a cake. The important thing is to talk to us and get involved. PAFS are a friendly bunch with a sense of humour and we would love to see you at our next event or meeting.

If you would like to contact a member of PAFs then please speak to the office and they will make sure that we get to meet!
