Friends of St Olave's

The Friends are a thriving and well supported PTA at St Olave’s School. The Friends of St Olave's is a committee made up of parents of pupils at the school.

Their role is to encourage closer links between parents, staff and pupils and to generate some money through events. These events provide an opportunity for parents, staff and pupils to meet on a social basis, get to know new people and have some fun. Any proceeds from events either go to the nominated School charity for the year, or to buy items for the School.

The Friends of St Olave's committee decide how to spend Friends of St Olave's funds.

How can I help the Friends of St Olave's?

There are many ways you can help with the Friends of St Olave's. The best way of supporting is to attend the events with your family. This will help the Friends of St Olave's raise money and also provide an opportunity for you to have some fun and get together socially with other parents, pupils and members of staff. Look out for a Friends of St Olave's update in the St Olave’s fortnightly Newsletter. You may also be able to help by baking cakes or serving refreshments at some events. Information will be detailed in the newsletter.
