Our SMASH awards, which are nominated by class teachers, reward children for all their hard work

during the term and particularly focus
on how the children contribute to class and school life.
We are now into our 4th year for the children to receive these trophies, and to see the joy on their faces when they collect their trophies in
assembly in front of their family and friends, is a lovely thing. See the school website for presentation photos and below for this and last
terms winners.

My name is Emma Burrow & I joined SMASH in October 2010 becoming the Chairperson in 2013.
I have been involved in fundraising for the children since my son was in Year 1, he is now in year 5 and
we have a daughter in year 8 at BBG Academy. Both our children have benefitted from the positive and
supportive learning environment that Gomersal St Marys provides. This is one of the reasons I joined
SMASH, I wanted to be able to give something back to the school and help raise vital funds to provide
the children with things that normally cannot be budgeted for through normal school funds. Fundraising
is hard work but hugely rewarding. We are always on the lookout for new members and new ideas.
We are a friendly bunch and would love for you to join us at our next meeting.
URGENT: We need more new members urgently, numbers are falling, and so are our ideas and
hands to help with all the fundraising, it only takes few hours every term to meet up and possibly
help at events. If we do not increase numbers, fundraising will no longer be able to be completed
and SMASH will fold. All monies raised go to our children, and what it is spent on is decided by
you as part of SMASH, please help!!!
