Can you help?
The BHCC relies on parent participation to ensure successful events. Every parent at Barrow Hills is automatically a member of the Committee and very welcome to come to meetings or pop an idea over. We hope that you continue to support us, beginning with the events planned for the rest of this term. If you feel you can help please contact your rep (see details below), David Brydon or if volunteers are needed you can sign up on Classlist when the event is published.
If you have any questions please contact David Brydon on firstname.lastname@example.org

Children in Need
Children in Need exists to change the lives of disadvantaged children and young people across the UK and since the pandemic this has become even more important. Appeal day is Friday 19th November, so for all of next week there will be donation buckets at the front desk for any loose change you may have to give to the children to donate. These will then move to the Bacon Buttie stall on Friday. Thank you in advance for your generosity.

Please can we remind you that the majority of the communications are sent via the parent portal on a Tuesday. Communications will vary for each child dependent on a variety of factors e.g. class, gender, sets.
