Like Bonnie Tyler the PTA need a hero but unlike Bonnie our hero needn’t be strong, or fast, or fresh from the fight, or even be a he. In fact, our hero could be you.
The AGS Summer Fete is taking shape and will be one of the PTAs biggest fundraisers of the year. It’s happening on 30thJune, 2018 to raise money to help refurbish the computer rooms.
However, we still need some heroes to step up and help. We are looking for people who:
a. Work for a company that would be interested in sponsoring the AGS Summer Fete (or run a matched-funding scheme and would be interested in taking part).
b. Would be able to spare a couple of hours the night before the fete or could help with the fete on the day.
If either of these sound like you, then please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
Any help you can give would be amazing.
Here is a taste of some of the events the PTA has put on over the last few years.
Year 7 Laser
This is a brilliant way for new boys to hang out with their new friends and make others by shooting them with lasers. A hugely popular event every year.
Art and Craft Fair
The AGS Art and Craft Fair - now in its 24th year - showcases around 80 local artists, displaying and selling their works over a weekend. The event kicks off with a preview night for VIPs and artists and then is opened up to the public. As well as paintings and sculpture exhibits, there is a Craft Fair running alongside the event. For more information, or if you would like to exhibit yourself or take a craft stall, please follow the show on our FaceBook link https://www.facebook.com/aylesburyartandcraft/
Burns NightOne of AGS’s best-loved fundraising nights. A wonderful mix of Scottish music, food and whisky. Some hae meat and canna eatand some wad eat that want itbut we have meat and we can eatso click on the link tae book it...Burns Night Booking Form 2018
Curry & Quiz Night
It’s back by popular demand. The AGS Quiz and Curry Night!
The AGS Quiz and Curry Night is one of the fastest selling nights of the year and for good reason. Who doesn’t like answering questions like “what was the first Mister Men book?”, “which individual has won the most Oscars?”, and “can you name the world’s largest desert?”, while stuffing their face with delicious curry?
Secure your tickets by simply filling in the form QUIZ NIGHT FLYER 2018 and handing it in to the school office before the 19th of Feb, 2018. You can pay by Parent Pay or by cheque but act quickly to avoid disappointment.
Thanks so much,
Oh, and it’s Mr Tickle, Walt Disney and Antarctica, in case you were wondering.
Outdoor Laser Tag
On Sunday 18th March we will have our very first all age combat laser day at Sabotage Events near Swanbourne, between Milton Keynes and Winslow. As usual, we will have the site to ourselves.
Boys from all years, along with friends and family members, are welcome to play with M14, M16 and AK laser guns with a range of 200m. No mess, no goggles, no paint, but plenty of excitement!
Numbers will be limited to 96 players over two sessions, to be held in the morning and the afternoon.
To secure your place, please pay via parent pay. The cost is £22 per player and send the completed application form 2018 Sabotage Laser Consent Form to the school office or email it to email@example.com
Summer FeteEvery summer term we hold our annual Summer Fete. Put this date in your diary and bring all the family to enjoy a great day out.
The PTA Summer Raffle prizes are also drawn on this day.
If you are able to help or wish to join the committee please E-Mail
Summer BallEvery alternate summer we hold a Summer Ball. This fabulous event includes a three course meal, coffee and chocolates, live bands and disco, plus a Gold and Silver Raffle and Auction of Promises. The Ball is held at the school in a magically transformed quad and school hall.. You can organise your own table of 10, or leave it to us to mix and match. There are only 150 places available, so don't delay in applying for tickets for this one – it's always a sell out! See details and booking form to follow shortly. If you are able to help at this event please E-Mail
Second Hand School Uniform
The PTA sell second hand school uniform, which is particularly useful if your son is gaining an inch a month!

We would be very grateful for donations of good quality second hand uniform and PE kit. These can be left at reception at any time during the school day.
RafflesThe PTA holds two major raffles each year - one during the Autumn term to be drawn at Christmas and one during the Summer Term to be drawn at the Fete. All parents are sent tickets via the boys so please do look out for them as they tend to get lost in bags. There are many prizes for each raffle with the first three printed on each ticket. If anybody has any unwanted christmas presents they wish to donate for any of our raffles - we are always happy to accept them
