Why do we have Friends of Holy Cross?
We are very fortunate at our school to have a Friends of Holy Cross that is, and has been, such an integral part of the school community for many years.
The main reason why most people join the Friends of Holy Cross is to get involved because we all have one special, precious thing in common – our children. The Friends of Holy Cross work primarily to make our school the best we possibly can for our children. It is also true to say that a large part of this work is to help raise much-needed funds for the School for extra equipment.
In its time the Friends of Holy Cross has raised thousands of pounds, which have been spent on improving ICT equipment and resources to enhance our children’s education and school life experiences. However our Friends of Holy Cross is about much, much more than just fundraising. It exists to provide closer links between home and school, and it is an excellent way to bring staff, parents and friends together socially in support of the school, working towards a common goal. It is great fun too!!! Obviously, as in any organisation, there are times when it is more ‘challenging’, but with the continued support of parents and staff our Friend of Holy Cross has always succeeded in its efforts.
The Friends of Holy Cross is not an ‘elite’ group, all parents and members of the school community can get involved if they want to, we recognise that our time is very precious so even if you only have a small amount of time available it will be greatly welcomed.
