St Mary's Angels
Another branch of our group is the ‘St Mary’s Angels’. The aim of this group is to support college families and staff through illness or bereavement. We ask all families in the school to consider volunteering to be an Angel. This network offers practical help such as meals and transport to hospital appointments – whatever is needed. We have divided the school catchment area into zones, each with a coordinator. If a family in your zone needs help, the coordinator will be in touch and ask who can help. FOSM will reimburse Angels for up to $20 to the cost for meals etc. so that money Volunteering to be an Angel is a valuable way to show that we care.
If you wish to join the committee or help in any way, please email us: FOSM@stmw.school.nz.
