Friends of St Paulinus
The Friends of St Paulinus is a fundraising group made up of family members and staff who raise funds to provide extra resources and activities for pupils.
There are currently four fundraising events each year. The main one is the Summer Fair, held in June or July, but there is also a Halloween Disco, Christmas Fun ‘n’ Buns afternoon in November and a Mother’s Day gift sale in school.

On Wednesday 29th November, all of our children were treated to a performance of Aladdin from the amazing M&M production team, they turned our dining hall into a magical theatrical experience, using state of the art sets, sound, lighting and special effects.
Friends of Paulinus helped the school raise funds for this special treat by holding lots of special events some recent ones were Fun & Buns and raffle tickets the winners will be announced shortly.
This is what the children had to say
“I liked EVERYTHING!” a boy in early years yellow group”
” It was really good, the best bit was the first part! the funniest part was the sound effects”
” It was really enjoyable I liked the jokes”
“It was awesome, best thing I’ve ever seen”
