No one is an island...

Our heartfelt thanks to the Raffle Captains who made those 39 beautiful baskets. Huge thanks also to all the Captains, Parent Reps, Teachers, and the wonderful library staff in P30 and P23, who sold literally thousands of tickets. We would also like to thank the Buzz and Web Team for all their advice and help, David Howell for his IT expertise, Rudi Schindler (WBH - World's Best Hausmeister), our cameraman - Lars Barragan De Luyz, the GEV, School Management - Frau Claussen and Dr Bauer, and everyone else who supported the raffle, donated money, or bought tickets.

We are delighted to announce that the raffle raised over €9,800 for the school! This surpassed even our ambitious expectations and we would like to again send our thanks to the whole community for their support! These funds are so vital this year. More importantly, it showed what the NMS Community is capable of when we pull together. We realise this was not the easiest thing to achieve this year, with limited contact, quarantines, and the increased stress that this Covid-year has caused. Hopefully, the Raffle was a fun distraction from the 'C-Word' and kept those all-important connections and relationships strong among our NMS family.

Congratulations again to our lucky winners! Be sure to claim your baskets as soon as possible. And if you weren't lucky this year, we hope you will participate in the raffle at the next festival. 

With warmest regards,
Your 2020 Festival of Nations Team,

Chevannes, Maja, Rhian, Sara and Winnie

Each class will receive an allocation of tickets next week. Raffle Captains and Parent Reps will be contacted directly and informed of the distribution process.

Raffle Tickets cost €2 each. Families should contact their Raffle Captain or Parent Reps to order however many tickets they would like. Be sure to let them know which basket takes your fancy! Teachers and Educators are also welcome to request tickets from their Captain/Parent Reps!

The Grand Raffle Drawing is planned for 9th December, but this date will be confirmed closer to the time, due to potential Covid-complications.
