Past events hosted by the Friends of MSJ have included:
Following on from a very successful Bonfire night, the Friends annual Christmas Fair was bigger and better than ever before, with more stalls and a larger venue. We are very proud to announce that we raised £888. Thank you so much to everyone who supported this event.
MSJ Bonfire Night was a sparkling success. The Friends supported the event by selling burgers and hot dogs and raised an incredible £898 for our School.
The Friends are thrilled with the success of our recent annual Golf Day, where we raised £422. Girls, parents, grandparents, teachers and old girls enjoyed a lovely sunny afternoon watching and playing golf, followed by supper. The men's 18 hole competition was won by Charles Probert and our very own Headgirl, Lucy Walton, won the ladies' 18 hole competition. Sue Adeney won the 9 hole competition.
Raffle prizes included a mountain bike and various vouchers, including a £50 voucher for the Swan pub in Hanley Swan.
A big thank you to all who supported our quiz night on Friday. Competition was fierce and the final result was extremely close! We sold 104 tickets and raised a whopping £840 for our School.
The Christmas Fair was a very popular and festive occasion, raising an impressive £510. Thank you to everyone who supported this event.
Our annual Golf Day was a resounding success, helped by the glorious weather. Even more staff and friends supported our event, which this year introduced a new 9 Hole Competition and raised £279.
The slight inconvenience of heavy showers and thunderstorms didn’t stop the Friends Tea Party from taking place. Instead, 130 girls, family members and teachers enjoyed a delicious spread of sandwiches and cakes in York Hall. For the younger guests there was face painting, hook the duck and wooden tower building. It was a wonderful way to end another busy week.
On Friday 27 February York Hall was transformed with haybales, gingham and metres of bunting into the venue for the first FMSJ Barn Dance. 150 girls, parents, families and staff spent an enjoyable evening dancing and do-si-doing. Halfway through the evening a delicious meal of chilli or hotdogs was enjoyed by all, before rounding off the night’s entertainment with everyone participating in a giant circle dance. An impressive total of £900 was raised.
