Family & Friends- the St John’s Parent Teacher Association
St John’s Family and Friends is the PTA for St John’s Marlborough. Our role is to raise funds for the benefit of current pupils and to provide a social outlet for parents and friends of the school. We are a small committee and welcome input from anyone involved with St John’s.
As only 4 people attended the AGM on 27 November, an EGM (Extraordinary General Meeting) has been proposed for 15 January 2018 in order to draw this charity to a close.
Please come to the meeting to share your views. Input from the community is very important to us.
If you have any questions email us: email@example.com

Family and Friends Needs YOU
Are you an ace cake baker? Can you pour tea for Britain? Family and Friends needs volunteers to run or assist at catering events.
You’ll be helping to raise much-needed funds for the academy and, we hope, you’ll have a lot of fun doing so. So whether it’s serving flapjacks at a Year 9 parents’ evening or pouring wine during the interval of the Savernake Cup, we need to hear from you.
If you can help, email us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Giving Machine
Make money for St John’s without leaving home.
St John’s Family and Friends makes money from websites including Amazon if you sign up to The Giving Machine portal and choose to support St John’s Academy, Marlborough. It’s very easy to sign up, then when you want to place an order sign into The Giving Machine website first, before accessing your online site and whatever you order will earn commission for the academy.
For example an order to Amazon will earn 3.75 % of its value for the academy. Some sites give more than others; Body Shop 6 %, M&S 3.75 %, John Lewis up to 3.75 %. It really is a numbers game. The advantage of our academy is that we have so many parents and staff who probably shop online all year round. We’ll track how much we are making and let you know in future newsletters.
