JGA

Welcome to the JGA!

Congratulations to our reception Dads' winning team!

To quote Kenneth Wolstenholme when England were crowned football world champions in 1966... "It's only 3 inches high... it's (not quite) solid gold... and it undeniably means that our Reception Dads are the champions of the 2017 Jesse Gray Football Tournament."  

A huge thank you to all the families who helped us make Saturday (14th) such a great success as we raised £210 for our school funds.

Special thanks to Karl Chessell and Alice Morton who organised the entire event with incredibly kind help from many of our parents running stalls to keep the children entertained as well as our teachers who gallantly showed their support in attendance.

We'd also like to show our appreciation to MCS Event Pro (www.mcseventpro.com) who sponsored this year's event as well as Thomas Yates and Belvoir Brewery (www.belvoirbrewery.co.uk) who kindly donated a case of bottles for us to present as this year's prizes.  

        

We raised just over £210 at the event for our fundraising pot.

The football tournament is testament to the great help and kindness we receive from our JG families.  Many thanks one and all.

FRIDAY 20TH OCTOBER - KEEP UP TO DATE IN THE PLAYGROUND

September’s playground boards were seen by a number of parents and teachers who hopefully found out a bit more about what’s been going on with the JGA over the past month – and what’s on the horizon.  See you again on 20th!

WHAT’S BEING SPENT IN YOUR CLASS?

Following on from last month’s announcement that each class has been given £100 from funds raised by the JGA, we can report that Miss Massey and Miss Kirk have begun using their money for much needed general classroom supplies.  We’ll keep you posted each month with what each class has been up to.
