Festive Fundraiser 2022

After a long term, we hope that you are looking forward to the holidays.

Like last year, we are launching a Festive Fundraiser in aid of our successful Small Sums Fund, so that we can continue supporting important educational projects at JGHS, and providing help to our pupils who need it most.

If you can, please click below make a donation via Parent Pay:

Look out for the “Parent Council Fundraising” button at the bottom of the list of payment items for your JGHS student(s). All funds raised during the Festive Fundraiser go directly to the JGHS Small Sums Fund. 

Supporting equity and attainment

This year the Parent Council has been really pleased to fund projects that support equity and attainment, for example:

  • Basket ball strips for the PE department
  • Subscription to The Week junior for the English department
  • Books and games for the Maths department
  • Active Learn subscriptions for the Modern Languages department
  • Support for decoration and fitting out of the new Support for Learning classroom in Bruntsfield House
  • Materials for the knitting club
  • Plants for receptionFeedback from teachers

Mr Cockcroft, Support for Learning Leader, said:

As you know, we moved into a large, empty room in Bruntsfield House last year. We spent the money on making the room more welcoming for the students who access it and bought soft furnishings, plants, cabinets to display pupils’ work and lots of picture frames.

We held a small art exhibition in July of the work of the students who access SfL and invited their parents in to see this. It was a great success and something we plan to replicate this year. Thanks again for the money we received.
