FRGS Autumn update

Dear All

I hope that you have had a good summer and are ready for an exciting term and schedule of Friends’ events in the coming year.

Meet the Friends of RGS – Monday 17th Sept - 7pm in the 6th Form Common Room.

This is an informal evening (with refreshments and nibbles) for anyone interested in supporting the School, where you can meet some of the Friends of RGS Committee Members for a chat about what we do, how we do it and hopefully how you can help!

Walkies – Friday 21st September - 9.30am

Walkies is designed to enable Parents or Grandparents (or anyone connected to the School) to get together for a walk in the wonderful countryside that surrounds Ripon before going back to the host’s house for a drink, cake and a chat. Dogs are not required but are a common accompaniment. We do ask for a £5 contribution to the FRGS. If you can’t do the walk but would still like a chat (and some cake!) you are still welcome to come along.

Friends of RGS Meeting - Monday 24th September - 7pm N1

Yorkshire Gin Fundraising Fiesta - Friday 28th September 2018 - 7.30pm Main Hall

Come along and join the party - we have a great live band, The Black Marcs, street food from the The Authentic Pizza Company and a selection of Gins from some of Yorkshire’s finest and most creative gin distillers, Masons, Slingsby and Whittaker’s. We will also have a bar serving beers, wine and soft drinks.

Tickets are £12 each, available via Parentpay, including a special Gin Cocktail Glass with your choice of Gin and Tonic. We will be operating a voucher system at the gin bar, so please also buy your vouchers in advance. Tickets are not available on the door.

1st Year Family Quiz – Friday 12th October - 7pm Main Hall

This is an opportunity for you to meet other families whilst enjoying a general knowledge quiz; refreshments will be available.

Christmas CD launch – Monday 22nd October

The Christmas CD will be available at all events, but you can secure yours in advance of the launch, the order form is available on the School website.

We look forward to seeing you at events during the coming year - after all, it’s only your support that allows us to provide additional funding to school for the benefit of all our children.

Kind regards

Tracy Butterfield
