A big ’thank-you’ to last years Citizen group who have now moved on to Swavesey Village College and Cottenham Village College. They were an amazing group of children who were very dedicated to their work as Citizens. We enjoyed a great day out in Cambridge as a celebration of their work and which was made more memorable by having some refreshments in Bills. A huge thank you to Stella’s mum!
Our new Citizenship group has got off to a very good start after successfully completing their training last term. We have lots of things planned including a Camhill’s Cafe in October where there will be refreshments and things to buy such as toiletries, books, toys, games and books. All donations will be gratefully received and should be sent to the school office. The Healthy Tuck Shop will also recommence in the last week of September and the citizens will be helping the reception classes and Key Stage 1 classes sell the fruit and vegetables. This is in addition to their work on the playground, playing and supporting younger children and helping them eat their lunch.
Our children love to support our community as Bar Hill is a great place to grow up in. Previous Citizenship groups have redesigned and helped improve the garden out side the Library and also designed and raised money for the Church memorial garden as well as supporting local charities such as Milton Hospice for Sick Children. The new citizenship group will chose the charity they wish to support at their first meeting.
Our citizenship group is led by Mrs Whyte (Head teacher) and Mrs Tabram (Deputy head) .
Our current citizens are: Tilly Knott, Ishbel Temel, Emily Montgomery, Alisha Marsh, Becky Swanswer, Katie Waldron, Daaisy Brumpton, Charley Satchell, Olivia Merry, Lauren Mills, Ella Carter, Lisa Murphy, Roxani Papamihail, Lucy Hayden, Shannon Moseley, Charlotte Debono, Charlie Parker, Ollie Sargent, John Cornwall and Theo Collins.
This is one of the largest groups we have had since starting the group 10 years ago! It will indeed be a challenge but we look forward to working with this very enthusiastic group.
Our Christmas fair was a huge success and we raised over £250! Our next fair is planned for the last day of the Easter term which will obviously have an Easter theme!
A working party from the Citizenship group met to organise our Annual ‘Learn 2 Learn Conference’. This focuses on study skills, thinking skills and preparation for the future. This is planned for Wednesday 17th April.
The Citizens continue to be creative in their play with reception children at lunch time and supporting Tuck Shop in different classes.
