Our Next Challenge!
We are just embarked on our next fundraising challenge and it’s a BIG ONE!!!!
As our school gets bigger, space is at a premium. Expanding the current school building is not an option and that’s where we come in. School have asked us to fund raise towards buying a wooden outdoor classroom to be used by all the pupils. We are currently obtaining quotes and looking at the various options. At a rough estimate we will need to raise £12,000! A huge amount of money!!!! FOGs feel that it can be done with the support of parents & teachers...
Our initial fundraising was a 'Quiz, Cheese, Wine and Auction Night' which was held in the school hall in October. At the beginning of December we held our annual Christmas Fair and 'Bags 2 School' have collected unwanted clothing/bedding etc. We are also selling Gisburn School Eco Bags for Life and at Christmas we organised a 'Secret Christmas Gift Room' where the children could buy a surprise gift for their special grown-ups!
On Friday, 31st March we held an Easter Egg hunt at 2pm. There were drinks, cakes, a raffle, lucky dip, tombola, hook a duck and crafts! Everyone had so much fun!
We held a very enjoyable Spring & Summer Fashion Show on Friday, 19th May at 7:30pm in the school hall. Tickets were £5 each, including wine & nibbles! Thank you to all who supported this event.
Our annual Summer Fair took place at school on Saturday, 24th June.
This year we organised a post Sports Day BBQ to help raise funds for school.
We also held a 'Gisburn School of Witches & Wizardary' end of term disco, which took place on Thursday, 20th July.
