Dear Hasmonean Community,
We did it! We have exceeded our £1.6m target!
On behalf of everyone at Hasmonean, thank you so much, so much.
The collective power of the Hasmonean community never ceases to amaze, a power that is in its achdut. To witness the tremendous vision, skill and conviction within our Fundraising Committee, composed mainly of governors, trustees and parents, utterly focussed on safeguarding this amazing institution, is truly humbling. We are so grateful to all of the parents, staff, students, alumni, governors and trustees who played their part in this communal effort.
Our families, communities and alumni have risen to support us in our time of need. They have demonstrated the value that they put on a good education and the trust that they have in Hasmonean to deliver. We stand in awe of their kindness and support, give thanks that we can continue to provide for our children’s futures, and pray that we will now move from strength to strength, offering every child what they need to grow to become inspired and upstanding members of Am Yisrael.
