Give &,


Did you know that QEGS Friends Parent Teacher Association (FPTA) is an essential part of school funding, providing extras that the budget won’t stretch to?

In previous years, through events such as the wine tasting, quiz nights and stalls, the FPTA raised money for the school, which was spent on a glass kiln, a 3-D printer and outdoor furniture. Last year, we raised money for a new observatory to house a super telescope that the school has been given.

All this organised by just a handful of people. Think what we could do with YOUR help.

Do join us for our monthly meetings in the QEGS Library. Ideas for fundraising and social events are most welcome.
