JGA

END OF YEAR & MIDSUMMER SPECIAL!

THANK YOU TO EVERYONE FOR A GREAT YEAR!        

A heartfelt thank you to everyone who has kindly given their time, their money and their donations to the JGA over the past school year.  A few special shout-outs to:

  • Our JGA Board – pre and post March’s AGM:  Janet Allen, Denise Woods, Jo Bedford, Alice Morton, Lucy Marciani, Sue Haria and Jo Travis, for their unwavering support
  • Our regular team of JGA supporters:  You know who you are…Year group reps, bakers, graphic designers, raffle prize finders, printers, Grotto elves, football referees, disco divas, quiz makers, curry finders, coffee afternoon hosts, ticket sellers, money counters (and so many more in between) 
  • Jesse Gray’s entire team of teaching staff who volunteer their time at events and support the JGA in so many ways 
  • Our site manager, Mark Radford, who you may not see but who is ever present and ever supportive

CELEBRATING SUCCESS!

This past school year, we have raised a whopping £4,467.08 for our school, which has been invested back into the school to fund:

  • £1,500.00 class donations
  • Coffee afternoons
  • Santa’s Grotto
  • Our Next Big Adventure reading dens

Keep a look out for where the money is being spent next year!

MIDSUMMER MADNESS 

A huge thank you to our families, our teachers, our Site Manager Mr Radford and the JGA team for a brilliant Midsummer Madness.  The sun was shining and the atmosphere was buzzing!

Our new stalls sold out and our resident stalls remained as popular as ever… and each and every one  helped us to raise an amazing profit of £2,400.00 for our school!

MIDSUMMER RAFFLE WINNERS

We originally sold raffle tickets for £2 per ticket but following feedback on the evening, we reduced these to £1 per ticket. For those who had already purchased at the original price, we doubled your ticket allocation to ensure this remained fair.  Thank you to everyone for helping us to raise over £360 on the raffle, the winners are below. Please collect your prize from the school office at your earliest convenience.
