In Summer 2021, current Year 10-12 footballers will be offered the opportunity to visit South Africa to play in fixtures, go on a safari and explore the country. To support the fundraising efforts for this trip, QEGS will be holding a raffle to win a Nintendo Switch (RRP £300) and pupils, parents, carers and friends of the school are invited to purchase a raffle ticket for just 50p.

This once-in-a-lifetime trip will incur substantial costs and so over the next 18 months, QEGS will hold various fundraising events to reduce the cost of the trip to parents and carers, and to fund as many exciting activities in South Africa as possible. The trip is part of the school’s tradition of incredible overseas trips, with recent memorable visits to Barbados, Uganda, Germany, Switzerland, Spain and Iceland to name just a few!

To purchase raffle tickets and enter the draw for the popular Nintendo Switch console, please visit Mrs Tighe in Primary Phase reception or Mrs Bythell in Senior School reception between 20th January and 6th February 2020.
