School Charity Committee
The School Charity Committee coordinates fundraising in support of a wide range of causes. During the course of the academic year, thousands of pounds are regularly raised by way of special events, such as a Talent Show and a Sleep Out as well as non-uniform days and concerts given by the Concert Band. In 2015/6 we raised a fantastic £22,003.69. There is also a toy drop at Christmas for St Vincent de Paul and a bag drop later in the year with all donations going to Action Cancer. Working alongside Abaana, a local Charity, Bangor Grammar raised over £75,000 to help build a new school in Gulu, Uganda, in grateful recognition of the public money used to build our new school on Gransha Road. During the summer of 2015 two teams, made up of students and staff, flew out to Uganda to help take part in the building process and meet the local community as well as work in Kampala, with Abaana, on their Street kids programme and in their New Life Homes. Coo Rom Bangor Grammar Nursery and Primary School is now up and running and we are still involved in supporting it on an ongoing basis. In 2018 we are planning to send out another team and raise enough money to build a new kitchen or staff homes for the school.
