We wish to echo the words of The Laurels School motto, In Gaudio Serviamus – may we serve joyfully, in the setting up of The Friends of The Laurels. Its primary purpose will be to serve the school in its aims to collaborate with parents to educate young women who are called to greatness as thinkers and scholars, principled individuals and citizens of the world.
To advance this mission, the school relies on the support of our community – parents, grandparents, friends, volunteers and staff. The Laurels does not receive funding from any outside sources and our goals for development are high, therefore The Friends of The Laurels commits itself to serving the school in the following ways: to support the School to raise funds for resources which will benefit the pupils and to promote The Laurels and its activities in the wider community.
The Friends of The Laurels also seeks to contribute to the family atmosphere and social cohesion of the School and therefore one of its aims will be to organise social events throughout the year for the whole school community.
In this foundational period, The Friends of The Laurels will be composed of a Co-Chair Parent from each year group and a Treasurer. They will meet with the Headteacher termly to discuss, identify and finalise events. As The Friends of The Laurels grows, this charter will be revised to suit the needs of the growing community it serves.
The Friends of The Laurels provides an opportunity for the school community, parents, teachers, staff, volunteers and benefactors, to be involved at the level of commitment they feel able to give; everyone is welcome to give of themselves and to contribute in whatever way they can in a spirit of joyful service.
Would you like to know a secret to happiness? Give yourself to others and serve them, without expecting to be thanked.
