In September 2018 a group of new and existing parents of KSGS children got together with a view to sharing ideas on how to revitalise the Parents, Teacher and Friends Association at KSGS.
The group has already attracted interest with new members attending meetings and receiving information via emails. There are lots of new ideas being suggested for fundraising activities, and ideas for social occasions. We welcome more people to support the work PTFA and help us raise more awareness and funds for the School.
In January the PTFA joined forces with a UK wide scheme called Your School Lottery which helps schools raise money through their local communities. Supporters of KSGS Lottery can join for a little as £1 per week and 40% of the ticket sales goes to our school. There are cash prizes to be won each week and if you match all six numbers you can win £25,000!
The draws are done each Saturday and results are posted online, you will also be notified by email if you have won.
Currently we have 48 supporters and we have had weekly cash prize winners. So far we have raised a total of £103 for the school with an annual projected amount being in the region of £1000. The PTFA are keen to increase the numbers of supporters to 100, if we can do this then the PTFA would be raising over £2000 per year. Just imagine how that money will benefit our children, for example new books, school trips, computer equipment, drama, sports, music etc
Joining the lottery is really very easy to do, simply go to https://www.yourschoollottery.co.uk and follow the instructions making sure that you search for Kirkby Stephen Grammar School to proceed with your application.
Please will you support this new scheme as not only will you stand the chance of becoming a cash prize winner, you will also be supporting the PTFA who can use funds raised to support your children at school.
