The Main Hall was abuzz with excitement as family members came to celebrate the achievements of the Class of 2018 Graduates of JFS School.
Our President, Lord Levy, introduced our guest speaker, Radio Presenter and Broadcaster Mr Nick Ferrari, who also made the presentations together with our Headteacher, Mrs Rachel Fink. All students received a Graduation Certificate and a bespoke Purim Megillah, which included photos of their time at the School. There were also prizes awarded for each subject as well as several special awards and scholarships. Students spending their Gap Year abroad were also able to watch a live feed of the ceremony in London.
A new annual sponsorship prize of £1000 was established this year in memory of David Minn a’h, a JFS Alumnus and Aeronautical Engineer who passed away tragically at a young age. It will be awarded to a student studying a similar subject to aid his/her studies at university. Also this year a new category of prize was established. The Andy Fraser Chessed Prize was presented to a student who showed much kindness and compassion to a fellow student after she suffered the bereavement of her father. This fits in perfectly with our family ethos of caring for one another and being supportive of each other and also epitomises the character of Mr Andy Fraser a’h. We thank all our existing donors and always welcome new ones. If you wish to donate a prize or sponsor anything in the name of a loved one, please contact Tamar Berman firstname.lastname@example.org or call 0208 206 3232.
It was wonderful to welcome the Graduates back to JFS and we wish them all well in their future endeavours.
