On 2nd Feb 2019 we held our annual Spring Fair at the RGS. The event was an opportunity to bring the School and wider community together and raise money for good causes.
There were lots of great games to play, a wide range of shops and stalls, tasty food and some fabulous prizes to be won. The Bouncy Castles were very popular, as was Splat the Teacher!!! Well done to the School Council who ran their own stall and raised almost 200 QAR; and congratulations to our competition and raffle winners who walked away with a host of excellent prizes!
Throughout the day we were treated to a number of superb performances on the stage. Pupils showcased their musical talents and the audience also enjoyed Irish Dancing and music by a Jazz Duo.
Thank you to everyone who came along to share the day with our whole community and support the School. It was wonderful to see so many parents and pupils socialising and enjoying themselves. I do feel that we have a wonderful community at the RGS which will only get stronger as the School grows.
Money raised from the Spring Fair will be shared between the charitable organisation for animal welfare, TNR Qatar, which is a non-government funded, volunteer community organisation working to trap, neuter, return and manage Doha’s community cats; and the Parents’ Association Fund, which is used to host further events to strengthen our school community and provide additional opportunities for pupils at the RGS. We would like to thank our sponsors: 7th Heaven Arts Centre; Archery Tag; Doha Golf Club; Go Nuts; Intercontinental Hotels Group; Sharq Village & Spa; Spa Thirty; Yama Yoga Studios; for their participation, which was greatly appreciated.
To put on an event like this takes an incredible amount of hard work. I would like to thank everyone who contributed to making the day such a positive experience for all who attended. A special thank you to the Parents’ Association for their exceptional, hard work which ensured the day was such a great success.
