Supporting the School at the Village Fun Day

The school could urgently do with some help for the fete day which is Saturday the 2nd July.

The PTA has a large area booked on the village green with 6 different stalls such as Sand Art, Button Board, Teddy Raffle, Lucky Dip, Money Sand Pots and Sweets Stall.

If anyone can spare even just an hour to come and help, please contact Mandy Longstaff at:

We would appreciate any time people can give between 2.00 and 5.00pm. The more helpers we get, the easier it is to run the stalls and then everyone gets to actually spend some time enjoying the fete day themselves.

Perhaps you have older children that would be willing to come and help for an hour. The stalls will all be together under three gazebos.

Many thanks for your support.

Next week is International Week. As well as other activities, we are running a clothing collection for the needy children in our Sister School in Atewasi, Ghana.

Please bring your good quality used or unwanted summer clothes to the School Office any day in the following week.

We look forward to your donations!

Thank you in advance!

Dear Parents/Carers,

Sports day has been postponed due to the inclement weather and the poor quality of the school field. Even as we type this, we have had the Swavesey PE teacher (who was bringing over a group of Year 10 pupils to help) call and say it is raining in Swavesey.

But please still send your child in their PE gear as we hope to take them out onto our hard court surfaces for various sports activities throughout the day.

We hope to rearrange another time for our running races to be held and will notify you with a time and date as soon as possible.

Many thanks for your understanding.

Many, many thanks to the PTA and all who supported the School Fun Day on Friday. We raised approximately £1200 this year but are waiting for a few more stall holders to deliver their money.

Feedback from the people from outside Bar Hill who attended was wonderful. One stall holder relayed to a member of the PTA:

*Lovely school
*Great atmosphere
*Terrific people
*My only regret is I hadn't come sooner!
*Lads even helped me pack up - such a delight.

Thanks to all who contributed to the Ghana collections over recent weeks and to the children who built community service projects around our sister school. We have raised £900 so far to get the school reopened. The photo came today from Atewasi with the caption, "playtime".
