Friends of Stonar
Friends of Stonar is a parent-run social organisation that exists to facilitate a social network for parents and carers, alongside fundraising activities to enrich the general education and lives of the children through varied activities outside of the school curriculum.
School concerts, plays and a wide variety of other events benefit from our input and we offer parental expertise in a support role wherever there is a need.
Being involved with Friends of Stonar is a great opportunity to meet other parents as well as supporting your school community.
Friends of Stonar helps organise school events such as the Summer Fete and creates fundraising opportunities for the school. School concerts, plays and a wide variety of other events benefit from our input and we offer parental expertise in a support role wherever there is a need. We always welcome new contributions. Look out for the committee meeting dates in the calendar and come along if you’d like to get involved!
We also arrange regular monthly informal get-togethers for a chat and a tea or coffee as well as drinks evenings and meals out. These are relaxed and friendly occasions and it’s a great way to meet other parents from year groups throughout the school. Nursery, Prep and Senior parents all come together at Friends of Stonar social events.
To date, funds raised have been put to use buying resources across the departments including sport, music, modern languages, Explorer Scouts, the Equestrian Centre and the library. We are currently engaged in a project raising money for trees around the site.
Remember that this is your organisation so all ideas are welcome. Join us for a cup of coffee or come along to our regular meetings – the level of involvement is up to you!
