Friends of Mount Pleasant

Welcome to the Friends of Mount Pleasant Page.

We are a small group of parents, carers and staff who work together to create family friendly events for Mount Pleasant pupils and also raise money for the school fund. Parents, carers, grandparents or anyone with close connections to the school are most welcome to join us.  We usually meet for an hour each month (you are welcome to bring your children with you). We know it can be difficult to spare the time so it is not compulsory to attend every meeting. No experience is necessary, just enthusiasm!


You can contact us via email or through our Facebook group, search for 'Mount Pleasant Primary Shrewsbury Parents'.


What does the School Fund get spent on?


Sometimes the School Governors request we purchase specific items, for example we used some of the money raised from the Summer Fair to buy a defibrillator for the school. The School Fund is also used to subsidise class trips if parent's voluntary contributions don't cover all the costs. It pays for visits to the school by theatre companies and other special treats such as bringing exotic animals into the school. It is also used to purchase things like extra classroom resources, a Christmas present for every child at the school and the annual Year 6 leavers party.


We welcome parent's ideas and suggestions, so if you feel there is something that would be particularly beneficial for the children please feel free to let us know.
