I’m a School Business Manager… Get Me Out Of Here 2022

29 November, 2022

This November, we brought back our much anticipated I’m an SBM Get Me Out of Here Competition for a third year running.

It’s always a pleasure treating one member of school staff to a very well deserved night away each year, and this year we brought back the competition bigger and better than ever before.  

I’m a School Business Manager Get Me Out of Here is an annual competition run by Tel Group across all of our social platforms and website. This competition is open to all UK school staff and enables one lucky winner to win a night away for 2 courtesy of Tel Group.

As well as our big night away prize, each week we have run an additional mini competition for our entrants, providing the opportunity for them to win a hamper full of goodies.

Guess the Celebrity 

For our first mini competition, we asked if our entrants could guess 3 previous King’s and Queen’s of the jungle. After 50 successful guesses, we entered them all into a random prize draw and our winner was Bradley Smith – School Bursar.  

Bradley received a Christmas themed Hotel Chocolat hamper, full of festive chocolate treats.

Guess the Stars 

For our second mini challenge, we took inspiration from the show and hid a number of yellow stars across our website and asked our entrants to find them. We had lots of successful guesses, and again put these names into a random prize draw. 

Our winner was Helen Kelly – School Business Professional. Helen also received a Christmas themed Hotel Chocolat hamper to enjoy.

IBSL National Conference 

We dedicated a stand for our competition at this years ISBL National Conference, offering not only an opportunity for school staff to enter, but pick themselves up some themed goodies. From mystery flavoured gin, to jars of mealworms (not as popular!), we had a fantastic day celebrating with you all. We loved seeing you all get in the spirit with our jungle themed props and Ant and Dec masks.

The Big Prize 

First and foremost, we would like to say and huge thankyou to every one who got involved this year. We have been inundated with entries from school staff across the UK, with over 350 people entered into our prize draw. It was great to see so many nominations (75 in total!) from friends and colleagues, we loved reading about the ways in which they have supported you through the year. 

But now it’s the announcement you have all been waiting for… time to crown the King/Queen of the Jungle 2022. 

The new Queen of the Jungle is Lorraine Berry – School Business Manager.  

Congratulations! We can’t wait to help you plan your one night stay for two at a UK location of your choice, will it be a city break or a spa retreat? We’re looking forward to seeing the photos! 

If you missed out this time, make sure to keep your eye out over on our social media, we have many more exciting competitions in the works. You can also be sure that this competition will be returning for a fourth year next November, so make sure the date is in your diary!
