Friends of Merton Court Events Autumn 2017

Friends of Merton Court (FOMC) also known as the Parent Teacher Association (PTA) is an active and integral part of Merton Court School. The principle aims of the FOMC are to engage in activities of all kinds social, educational and fund-raising to further enhance the school-life of our children and their families.
This term we have a number of events planned. As always, we extend a warm welcome to all of our new parents who may wish to get involved. Remember, you don’t need to be on the committee to help at any of these events.

Helper/class rep meeting Tuesday 3 October (9am)
If you would like to get involved and help at any FOMC events this year, please come along to the Dining Room on Tuesday 3 October.

Friends of Merton Court would like to thank everyone for supporting the events we host for you. They take lots of planning and hard work and could not take place without the dedication of the committee members, staff and the many volunteers that help at the events. We welcome any suggestions and help for future fundraising events and we would welcome any ideas you and your children may have for future purchases with the funds we raise.
