Princes Risborough School

Do you have…

·        A passion for improving the lives of children?

·        A drive to support the community you live in?

·        Experience of secondary school education?

·        Free time during the day, Monday to Friday?

·        Experience of leading teams?

 

If the answer to some of these questions is “yes”, then we would like to talk to you!

Princes Risborough Secondary School has a relatively new team of Governors who are a friendly bunch with some fantastic skills. We provide a vitally important role as “critical friend”, supporting and challenging the school to provide the best for all the children in its care. To do the best we can we need more like minded people who have the time and energy to help improve the life chances of our local children.

If you feel that you would be interested in contributing to our team please email ChairofGovernors@princesrisborough.bucks.sch.uk.

News from the Princes Centre

Update October 2018
Charity Number 1151083

The Centre has gained yet another award - this time we have won the ‘Best Day Care Service 2018’ award from Global Business Insight Awards.

We have experienced a bumper month with grants and donations. The King-Cullimore Charitable Trust have provided a substantial grant towards the reconstruction/refurbishment of the lower hall area which is very welcome and brings the start of this project much closer. Red Kite has provided funding to continue the very popular and beneficial pottery sessions for a further year. The Mobbs Memorial Trust has contributed towards the purchase of a vehicle to provide transport for our Bourne End clients. Lastly, St Mary’s Church have very kindly given a generous grant. Their continued support for the Princes Centre is very much appreciated. We have also received donations from the National Citizen Service, Banjovi Revival and other individuals. We are extremely grateful for all this support.

The Jinglers and their friends are planning a Festive Concert which will be held in St Mary’s Church on Friday 14th December at 10.30 am. Admission is free and refreshments will be available from 10.00 am. The Jinglers DVD, which makes a lovely Christmas present, will be on sale and there will be a retiring collection in support of the Princes Centre. Please put this date in your diaries.

We will also be holding a Christmas raffle so if you have any unwanted gifts that you would like to donate to be used as a prize, please contact Kim. If you would like to support the Centre in any way, or if you would like to book a hall, please ring Kim, our manager, on 01844 345105.
