Dear Parent / Carer
Further to my recent letter around school funding, and following a meeting with Holly Lynch MP, Holly has launched a petition against the proposed Government spending formula for our local schools.
We would urge parents and friends of NHGS to please sign the petition. You can do this by following the link below:
Thank you in advance for your support.
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 www.cash4coins.co.uk 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.
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.
Come and join us at our AGM , 7pm in school on Tuesday 7th February.
Stay on afterwards for the PA meeting which follows – 7.30pm-9.00pm. Find out what we’ve been up to and what our future plans are to support your child’s school. Refreshments will be available.
Hope to see lots of you there!
