Online Update February 2013


Hello, good evening and welcome—as someone famous once said!

As the new chairman of the Friends I would like to invite you to come and join our merry band.

We meet monthly for an hour or so and plot all kinds of interesting things for the benefit of our wonderful school and all pupils.

It’s early days yet, but we hope to stage many social and fund raising events throughout the year—especially as this is the school’s 30th anniversary.

All willing hands will be gratefully received as will any fund raising and/or social ideas you may have.

Our next meeting will be on Thursday 21st March at 6pm in school. All welcome!

Kathy Jones,



If you don’t do anything else this week—then do this! Join The Giving Machine! It takes a matter of minutes, costs you nothing and is entirely pain free!

Once you have signed up online, you access your online shops through the search engine and every time you spend money a donation is made to the school of your choice—Crickhowell High, of course!

I couldn’t believe how easy it was. In less than two months I’ve raised £10 for the school—and that doesn’t include online grocery shopping.

Schools literally make thousands of pounds a year out of this—armchair fundraising at its’ best!

See how much you can raise!



Calling all friends! Whether you’re a student, teacher, parent, carer, relative or neighbour let us know what you would like us to help buy for the school. Email us at:


In the past couple of months the Friends have supported the school with the following donations: £2,800 towards the refurbishment of the tennis courts; £500 towards the 2013 Rock Challenge project and £100 towards the provision of essential examination equipment such as calculators etc. Let’s keep up the good work!


Don’t forget your tickets for The Canterbury Tales at The Clarence Hall from Wednesday to Friday this week. Forget the television and give yourself a rip-roaring night out and support the students in Chaucer’s tales from 7.30pm nightly. Tickets £7 Adults, £5 Children from the school office or on the door. Don’t miss it!
