Our annual Yom Ha'atzmaut celebrations at JFS were as exuberant as ever this year!

Dancing to a live performance from Eitan Freilich, students and staff enjoyed the wonderful atmosphere, with wonderful food, in beautiful sunshine.

Happy Birthday Israel!


Six Hospitality and Catering students planned, organised and produced a 'Charlie and the Chocolate factory' inspired cake and hot chocolate dessert lunch in school.

Matty, Olivia, Ari, Erica, Ben and Gabriella hosted staff and students who were able to purchase a ‘Golden ticket’ to gain entry. They managed to raise £500 for Chai Cancer Care, specifically for Chai’s specialised cancer support services.  


Mr Appleman (Headteacher) was privileged to be invited to St James’s Palace as a guest of Mr John Copper (JLGB Vice President and JFS Governor) to recognise the achievements of five JFS students.

The students received their Duke of Edinburgh Gold Certificates in the presence of HRH the Earl of Wessex.  We are thrilled that so many of our students participate on this programme annually at all levels.  


Three women who attend Jewish Care’s Brenner Community Centre in Stamford Hill celebrated belated Batmitzvahs as part of a JFS Bar/Batmitzvah programme with the Jewish Informal Education Department (JiEP) at JFS.


The inaugural event of the newly formed Parent Fundraising Committee was held last week at the JFS site with 120 happy participants. Parents, grandparents and JFS staff joined together for a fun and enjoyable evening of Bingo in the main hall.

Guests were treated to a wonderful spread of sushi, sandwiches, snacks and drinks to help and nourish through the rounds of Bingo. As well as gifts for the Bingo winners, a generous raffle offered great prizes such as sessions with personal trainers, vouchers for hairdressers, and designer handbags.
