The Friends of St Ursula’s Convent School “FOSTUR” has been created to foster links between school and home. We hope to encourage a feeling of ‘community’ amongst the parents and carers through its social events whilst at the same time raising funds for the benefit of the girls who attend the school. All parents and carers of St Ursula’s Convent School pupils are automatic members of FOSTUR.
The aims of FOSTUR are twofold:
1) To provide closer links between home and school. FOSTUR events will encourage staff parents, carers and friends to come together socially in support of the school working towards a common goal, and;
2) Fundraising activities for providing extra equipment or activities for the pupils, over and above that which the school provides from the funding received from the Local Authority.
Who we are:
A small group of parents have met and agreed to fulfill the committee roles for the current academic year.
You can reach us on the email firstname.lastname@example.org or follow our Facebook page. The link to the Facebook page will be sent out via email from the school office on request, or you can type in the address below and request admission.
