Thank you to all our helpers this year.

As this academic year enters its final half term, we’d like to take this opportunity to thank everyone for their support, especially all those parents and other family members who have helped us serve refreshments, sell raffle tickets and run stalls at the Christmas Fayre. With your help we have been able to raise over £9000, which has been spent on a number of projects in school.

For more details, see ‘Projects’.

Cash4coins collection

Here at The North Halifax Grammar School we are busy fundraising by collecting old British or foreign coins and notes, even obsolete currency. Initially you’ll see lots of posters around the school as well as the collection bucket. Once all the currency has been collected we will send it to who exchanges it into cash we can use. The bucket will be here all year so keep it coming please.

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.

Outdoor Canopy – £7,500
Laser Cutter – £1,500
3D Printer – £1,500

Masterchef Prizes – £148.59

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

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.
