The Friends

The Friends of St. Dominic’s are an enthusiastic and committed team, consisting of up to fifteen parents and several teaching staff including the Headmaster. The Friends work alongside the school arranging a wide variety of fundraising events, providing invaluable support and enrichment to the school and our children.

Although fundraising is a significant function of The Friends, it is not our only aim. The organisation of events for the pupils, staff and parents is equally important to assist the whole school development, and to allow everyone to meet each other in a social environment.
