WaterAid fundraising

Well done to our Senior DAS class who, with a bit of help from the Junior class, raised a total of £400 for WaterAid.  The money was raised as part of the Christmas fayre – an event planned and organised by the pupils.

In a letter to the class, WaterAid’s Education Specialist said, “The gift from Bell Baxter High School will help us install a tapstand in Tombohuaun, bringing a reliable source of clean water to the village.  We’ll also train the community on how to look after their new water supply so it lasts for the long term.” [Maria Georgiou]

This was a fantastic achievement by all of the pupils and staff in DAS.

Rector’s message

It is almost the end of term and, as ever, it has been hectic over the last few weeks.  A recent flu bug has impacted on pupil attendance and a number of staff have also been absent.  We wish everyone a return to full health in the run up to Christmas.

On a positive note, many staff and pupils have been involved in a range of events and activities beyond the classroom with recent success in sport and dance.  Pupils have also been raising money for charity, while others enjoyed a ‘Technologies Careers Day’ and a Japanese Language and Culture Youth Conference.

May I take this opportunity to wish you and your family a pleasant and, hopefully, relaxing Christmas.  We would like to send our very best wishes to everyone for 2018.
