NHGS Parents’ Association AGM Tuesday 7th February 2017

We were very pleased to have the best ever attendance at our AGM on Tuesday night. Thank you to all those who gave up their evening to come along.

During the meeting we celebrated the fantastic fundraising efforts of the PA during the year 2015-2016 which allowed for the following purchases for school:

Outdoor Canopy – £7,500
Laser Cutter – £1,500
3D Printer – £1,500
Creativity Prize – £400
Masterchef Prizes – £148.59

We also elected the officers who will oversee the continuation of this support for school for the next year:

Chair- Hermione Berry
Vice Chair – Sangeeta Duffy
Secretary – Joanne Robinson
Treasurer – George Bingham

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all, family and friends of students at NHGS, for your fabulous support for our fundraising events. Without you such donations would simply not be possible, and we know how much the school truly values and appreciates every penny we are able to raise.

Thank you so much to all students from Years 7, 8 and 9 for their fantastic chocolate donations this morning. It looks like this year’s Chocolate Tombola might be the biggest ever!

Calling all Upper Sixth Form Parents

Please remember to bring your bottle donations for the bottle tombola stall to the Year 13 parents’ evening on Thursday 24th November. (We need as many bottles as you can provide please!).

We will be there at parents’ evening, ready to receive your bottles and serve you hot and cold drinks in exchange.

Cakes and people needed!

Can you help us make this the best Christmas Fayre ever?

We know everyone is very busy and possibly you didn’t see this plea in the recent School Newsletter, but please take a moment to complete this form and send it back into school so we can be confident that our cake stall will be full!

Cakes can be brought into school on the Saturday, but we’d really like to know how many to expect so we can prepare the tables.

The PA will be running the cake stall, a chocolate tombola, a bottle tombola (if we get enough donations of bottles), the grand raffle, a 3D decorations stall, a wreath stall and a mulled wine stall. If you have any free time on the afternoon of Friday 2nd or during the day of Saturday 3rd and would like to help us set up and run the Christmas Fayre we would be very happy to have you in our friendly team.

Thank you, in advance, for your support.
