Nower HIll High School has recently canvassed parental opinion on setting up a voluntary fund to contribute to projects in school to improve facilities for our students. Real term cuts over a number of years have meant that plans to improve the fabric of the school are not always met by the funding received by Government. That said, the school has been fortunate enough over the last few years, through efficient financial control, to deliver some much needed building developments, including new sports changing rooms and extending and refurbishing the dining centre.
In spite of the many improvements we have made to the school, there is more to do and it is clear that schools who are proactive in establishing voluntary funds enjoy high quality facilities. Since 75% of parents support a voluntary fund and would be willing to contribute, we have launched the Nower Hill High School Voluntary Fund.
All funds generated will be used to support whichever projects are considered most important to the school at the time, which at the moment would be to build a new Drama theatre and to re-model the Gristwood centre to improve our Music facilities. This would allow us to decommission the current almost 50 year old music hut, which houses our peripatetic lessons and is no longer fit for purpose.
This is purely voluntary contribution which you can opt in or out of as you wish; it is not a requirement to give a monthly/termly amount as in some schools.
If you would like to support Nower Hill in its next exciting development, to ensure our children have only the best facilities, then please follow the instructions to set up either a regular or one off contribution.
