Every year we hold a Winter Fair, Summer BBQ, breakfast for our year 6 students writing exams, a few popcorn nights and an annual charity drive. We love new ideas for events: we have supported parents to run a Japanese cooking class, an astronomy night, a talk on applying to secondary school, and more. Let us know what your idea is and we will help you make it happen.
We also love being green, so please let us know your ideas on how to make our events and the school more environmentally friendly.
Your support and contributions will enable us to meet our goals and improve conditions. Your generous donation will fund our mission.
Our Year 6 Students wrote their SATS exams from 13-16 May 2019. To start them off right, we the parents prepared breakfast for them every morning. A great big thank you to our local Tesco in St. John's Wood for providing all the fruit, cereals, milk, juice, and more, and to Gail's for their lovely breads. Thank you all the parents who set their alarms early, and to our student volunteers who pitched in to support their year 6 friends, who worked very hard over many months to prepare. Well done everyone.
The weather may have done its worst, but we had the best Winter Fair. Our BBQ staff outside were the heroes of the day--braving the elements to serve up the best hamburgers and hot dogs. All the cold and rain did do some good: our Mulled Wine and Apple Cider stall did better than ever. Thanks to our Japanese parents for all the yummy sushi and the calligraphy and crafts: you put smiles on lots of faces and bellies. Thanks to everyone who cooked and baked, and served food and drinks: the Barrow Hill family is a big one to feed!
There was lots for sale, curated with care by our bric-a-brac staff (please don't leave us!). There was lots of excitement about our Silent Auction, which did better than last year. Thanks to our amazing student staff for running our slime workshop, pocket money and jam jar stalls, and selling drinks. We had again an amazing hair and face-painting salon, and a photo booth to capture all those great new looks. Thanks to Santa and all his elves for making the trip down from the North Pole. Yet again, we had the best Santa's Grotto in the city. And most importantly, a big thank you to all our parents, teachers, students and staff.
We had a couple of firsts this year: we used a card reader to take card payments (yeah technology!), and this was the first Winter Fair where we recycled all those empty plates and juice boxes. A big pat on the back to everyone who used our new recycle bins.
On 12 November we had our first popcorn night where we recycled everything! Thanks to Hugo in 5A for writing to Innocent to ask for a donation of healthy drinks in a fully recyclable package. And thanks to everyone who attended, who were all super-conscientious about putting empty paper bags, cans and juice boxes in recycling bags.
A special thanks to Innocent, who generously donated 100 of their Bubbles drinks, and to Tesco for a pile more juices. And thanks to all the parents who volunteered to pop all that popcorn, and help make the night run smoothly.
