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.

’Alone we can do so little; together we can do so much’ Helen Keller

We are always on the lookout for volunteers (and committee members) and fresh ideas. So, if you have a little time to spare, or know of any novel ways to raise money, then please get in touch. We would love to hear from you. Email: friendsofstpiusx@st-piusx.cumbria.sch.uk

Fundraising Goal

Our next fundraising goal is to purchase a class set of iPads and a charging trolley. This goal was set in March 2021.

Previous fundraising has enabled us to:

  • purchase a second school minibus and pay for its signage (March 2021 - £9,550) 
    • this enables the pupils to go on whole class visits and trips to enhance the curriculum and provide them with enrichment and cultural capital opportunities.
  • contribute towards a new phonics reading scheme (October 2020 - £4,220) 
    • this allows pupils (mainly EYFS & KS1) to read books that match the phonics phase they are working at or within.
  • purchase a school minibus and pay for its signage (February 2020 - £8,200) 
    • this enables the school to take groups of children (up to 16) out of school to enhance the curriculum and provide wider opportunities. It also allows them to run a school bus service for families that have moved out of the area but want to remain at out wonderful school.
  • contribute towards replacing the adventure playground and trail (2018/19) 
  • contribute towards the Early Years outdoor area (2017)
