Term 2 Attendance Prize Winners

All children with attendance of 98% and above and who arrive to school regularly on time were entered into our lottery to win vouchers for the winner and 2 friends to have some fun at Playzone in Herne Bay. The draw was made in assembly at the end of last term and our lucky winner was Mia Hogbin in 4PP. Well done Mia! We were also very lucky to have had complimentary tickets from Theatrecraft for a family of 4 to go and see their Pantomime, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs, at The Kings Hall. This very deserving prize went to Lilia Young of 5MB who has had 100% attendance since attending HBJS in year 3. Well done Lilia! We would like to say a BIG Thank you to Andrei Shchedrov, the Manager at Playzone, Herne Bay and Theatrecraft for kindly donating these wonderful prizes to us. Don’t forget, we have more amazing prizes to come. To be in with a chance of winning these prizes, your child needs to be in school regularly and on time.
