Friends of AGS
Friends are a dedicated group of parents of AGS pupils, both current and past. The purpose of Friends is to give something back to Antrim Grammar that enhances the pupil experience at the school. This can take many forms - purchasing equipment not otherwise available, support at school events and fund raising events.
In the last few years Friends have used the funds raised to buy a suite of 30 laptops, defibrillators (x3) and a 3-D printing machine for the Technology department. We’ve organised quizzes, shopping trips to Dublin and sponsored walks. We are purchasing new sound and lighting equipment for events in the Stinson Hall following the most recent sponsored walk in April 2016.
Friends regularly assist at school events throughout the year such as Open Day and Christmas/Spring concerts.
Any support is welcomed! Friends meet for around an hour each month in the school staffroom to discuss purchases and plan forthcoming events. You are not committed to attend meetings if that isn’t your thing - helping out as and when available at events is welcomed. Contact the secretary via email AntrimGSfriends@gmail.com you want to help.
