Let the festivity begins with GEMS Jumeirah Primary School (JPS) holding a mega event on Friday, March 1st, 2019 between 2 pm and 6 pm to celebrate a decade of fund-raising success, hosted on the school grounds of GEMS Jumeirah Primary School (JPS) in Al Safa 1 and open to the JPS community and the general public, and we’re all excited to once again become a part.
The tenth edition of the fun-filled family fair that raises funds to support children’s education in developing countries. It opens to the JPS community and the general public, so it’s all for a good cause.
Driven by the Parent Teacher Association, more than 5,000 people become a part of the JPS Spring Fair which is the school’s largest event of the year.
There is so much for the families to enjoy and to look forward to — traditional fair games, shopping at the Traders’ Souq, delicious food, entertainment and amazing prizes at the Terrific Tombola. A Silent Auction will also include numerous exciting items, from holiday packages in Kuala Lumpur to specialized medical services. Dubai 92’s Catboy will host this year’s fair.
JPS acknowledges its responsibility in raising awareness and contributing towards a culture of care and positive social impact that is why it is set to donate all raised funds to the charity’s Adopt a School initiative. Funds collected in previous years were used to build schools in Nepal and Malawi, and support Syrian refugee children in Jordan through Dubai Cares’ Early Childhood Development (ECD) program.
“Children and learning are at the heart of our school and we strive to extend the power of education to those less privileged. Other than being a fundraiser, this event is also an opportunity to celebrate our children and our proactive community,” said Rachel Higgins, principal/CEO of GEMS JPS.
“We are grateful for all efforts, big or small, that make the JPS Spring Fair an annual success, enabling us to transform, little by little, the lives of vulnerable children,” Higgins added.
