FRIENDS of RGS: Update

THE 1555 Ball at the Old Swan Hotel was a huge success, attended by 203 guests, with plenty of fun to be had by all until carriages at 1am.

With special thanks to our pre-dinner drinks sponsor NGC Networks, Helen Tabor Photography for sponsorship and Reef Hound for their fabulous music. Also thanks to four school pianists (Will Bellaries, Jamie Tabor, Xiao-Ai Hill & Chessie Abrahams) and to Mr Barker for organising the portable piano.

The link for purchasing photographs will be available shortly and emailed out to parents who attended.

FRGS wishes to thank everyone who supported the ball, from purchasing tickets, making generous donations, buying raffle tickets and supporting heads & tails, the gift tree and auction on the night.

There has been fierce competition over raffle ticket sales, with the winning form, who will be treated to Domino's pizzas and ice cream, to be announced by Mr Webb in assembly.

Total funds raised will be announced in next months newsletter.

FRGS are currently planning social events for next year, please do get in touch if you would like to get involved by emailing
