Events and Fundraising

At St John’s all fundraising is carried out by the Parent Council and not by a separate PTA within the Parent Council.  Fundraising by the Parent Council provides the school with approximately £5-7k additional funds per year. The Parent Council are always looking for new fundraising ideas or suggestions so if you have any please feel free to share with us or if you are interested in assisting please contact us via email: stjohnspriparentgroup@gmail.com or via our Facebook:St Johns Primary School – Hamilton – Parent Council/Forum.
