The Friends of Mary Rose is a small group of parents, relatives, friends and staff who work together to support the school in all kinds of ways. We organise social events to encourage families to get together, share experiences and have a good time. At the same time we also raise funds so that we can buy specialist equipment that the school could not otherwise afford.
Recent contributions have enabled us to part fund a new mini bus and to buy and install an outdoor sunken trampoline which is very popular.
Our biggest annual event is the Summer BBQ where families, staff and children enjoy a fun afternoon sharing a meal together and enjoying live music and children’s activities. This year we raised over £11,000, mostly due to a bumper raffle.
We are always on the lookout for families and friends to join us even if it only to help out occasionally.
