THE FRIENDS OF ST PIUS X

The Friends of St Pius X (FOSPX) was set up and constituted in September 2019. Prior to this, there was a St Pius X PTA (Parents & Teachers Association). Many of its members are still active FOSPX committee members.

The Friends of St Pius X is a group that is made up of the school community and its main purpose is to fundraise for St Pius X Catholic Primary School, to benefit its pupils.

Previous fundraising has enabled us to:

  • contribute towards the Early Years outdoor area (2017)
  • replace the adventure playground and trail (2018/19)
  • purchase a school minibus and pay for its signage (February 2020 - £8,200)
  • contribute towards a new phonics reading scheme (October 2020 - £4,220)

We are always on the lookout for fresh faces and ideas. So, if you have a little time to spare, or know of any novel ways to raise cash, then please get in touch, we'll be really happy to hear from you. Email: friendsofstpiusx@st-piusx.cumbria.sch.uk

Fundraising Goal

Our next fundraising goal is to purchase a second school minibus to enable the pupils to go on whole class visits and trips, to enhance the curriculum and provide them with enrichment opportunities.
