As I write the children are rehearsing on the outdoor stage for Proms in the Park - Sunday afternoon at 1.00pm. Do come along and enjoy the children’s performances! We enjoyed another wonderful production this week as Year 3 performed Snow White.
The Pre-Prep and Prep Sports Days on Wednesday were a great success. Thanks to our fantastic team of sports staff and their superb organisation everything ran smoothly. It was a real celebration of sport across the age range. Congratulations to all who took part and contributed to their house total. Well done to the medal winners and to the winning house - Kean.
Today the Year 8 children leave for the Ardeche; their final Barrow Hills residential. This is the trip that all the children look forward to. It is a celebration of their friendships and their time at Barrow Hills. Bon voyage Year 8!
Year 7 will also be in France next week, on their residential in Normandy. They will be learning about French culture and language, and about the World War II history of the area. I am sure they will also have lots of fun!
Special thanks to the BHCC
Last Friday the last of the year’s cake sales took place and raised £135.10. This brings the total for the year from these sales to £1,172.50. This was the last sale to be organised by Rachel Bailey and I would link to thank her for all her time and work in making these regular cake sales such a success.
Thanks also to Gillian Wilson, who has taken on the responsibility for Bacon Butties on Friday mornings. She wished to present badges to the children who help each week and we did this in last Friday’s assembly.
And, as ever, thank you to all of the BHCC reps who organised the refreshments at Sports Day and have organised the drinks and barbeque for Proms in the Park.
As the hot spell is now over the children should come to school in normal uniform on Monday.
I look forward to seeing many of you on Sunday afternoon for the Proms.
With best wishes,
