Jewish Schools Awards 2020

PaJeS, together with the Jewish News, are holding the Jewish Schools Awards on 11th February 2020, and we will be celebrating five years of this prestigious event.

To celebrate our fifth year, this will be our biggest event to date and each school has been given the opportunity to take part in the PaJes Pitch, an inter-school competition with teams competing against each other to win substantial funding for a school project.
