Friends of SVP Zone

Are you interested in helping our children have those little extras to enrich their time at school? We are a group of parents who meet once a term (over a glass of wine) to plan fundraising activities for the school and to discuss how any money raised should be spent.  Anyone is welcome to come along.

You can find more information on the PTA at their events website: or keep up-to-date via the facebook page.
