On Saturday, 13th October, parents, teachers and friends of QEGS were invited to a Dinner Dance, to raise funds for the school's new rewards system, which will recognise and celebrate the achievement and effort of its students by offering prizes, such as chocolate bars and stationery, during the terms ahead.
On the evening, the school hall was transformed into what one parent described as a "fairytale"! Through clever lighting, lent by Balcan Lighting, and plants, lent by Wyevale Garden Centre, diners enjoyed the conducive atmosphere, whilst eating a delicious supper prepared by the Parents' Association. The bar helped everyone relax and mingle, whilst our very own Alice Verdon sang and played the guitar until the Bluestones Swing Band struck up and people began dancing.
The evening was something the Parents' Association hope to make an annual event. It was extremely well-attended and raised nearly £2000, helped by the table raffles, a game of ‘Heads and Tails’ and the popular 'gin roll'. The Parents' Association would like to thank everyone who helped, donated and attended the night. A huge thank you goes to the Horncastle Co-ops, Tesco, Brightmedia, The Admiral Rodney Hotel, Tanya’s, The Old Stables, Redwood Café, Myers Bakery, The Golf Hotel, The Petwood Hotel, Lorenzo’s, Branston Hall Hotel and Foxy Cakes and Bakes for their generous donations of food and/or raffle prizes. Finally, special thanks go to the sixth form waiters and to the site team, whose patience and help was invaluable.
