Parent Council Updates

We’d like to remind everyone of 2 fundraising initiatives currently be run by our Parent Council.

Easy Fundraising

Easy Fundraising is a free service that allows charities and good causes to raise money when their supporters shop online with over 2,700 retailers, including Amazon, John Lewis, Next and Argos. It’s free to sign up and you pay exactly the same price as you would normally, including any special offers.

For every purchase made through the link, the retailer will donate a small percentage to our school funds.

You’ll find our Easy Fundraising page here. We’d really appreciate it if you used this link when buying any gifts online this year.

Comedy Night
Hamilton Grammar Parent Council proudly present their Comedy Night hosted by Des McLean & Friends.

This promises to be a fabulous night of comedy entertainment to chase away those new year blues, so why not buy tickets for your family, friends, neighbours or even teachers for Christmas?

You can find our more on their Facebook event page.

Dress Differently, Support Local Foodbanks

On Friday 24th November HGS will be having its first collection for the Hamilton District Foodbank. The foodbank is a vital lifeline to families living in poverty in the Hamilton area. Every day they provide food packages to families who are unable to buy food for a variety of reasons.

In the run up to Christmas the foodbank needs our help more than ever. The nice things that we take for granted over the holidays, many people do not have.

We are having a Dress Differently Day in which instead of paying £1 you bring items of food to donate to the foodbank. There will be posters displayed around the school showing the items in most need. The list is available here.

This will also be a house competition with points being awarded to the house which collects the most food, so brighten up your uniform using your house colour (Brandon – Red, Clyde – Blue, Douglas – yellow) or go wild and come to school completely dressed in that colour and show your support for your local community and your school house.

HGS could really make a huge difference to our community this Christmas!
