New year... new events!

Happy New Year! Last term was a great success in terms of fund-raising. The Christmas Fayre raised £463 and the Pupil Enterprise Scheme raised a massive £494.19 profit. The saying that from little acorns grow giant oak trees is definitely apt! We gave 24 pupils £2 each and they went out with a vast array of schemes... baking and selling buns and foods, washing cars, counting the number of sweets in a jar, helping at farmers' markets and car boot sales, devising quizzes and games... and the net result is almost £500 to spend on projects to be decided by the school's Pupil Council. Megan Withers raised over £100 and so received a prize for her great efforts, but we are truly grateful to all the pupils and their family and friends who worked so hard.

The next FHHS Planning Meeting is on Monday 19th January at 7:30 p.m. in school and all are welcome to attend this. We have two events already booked in for the spring term:

  1. Dr Tom's No Mean Feat ceilidh band will be hosting a ceilidh for us at Kexborough Social Club (Churchfield Lane, Darton, Barnsley, S75 5DU) on Saturday 7th February at 7 p.m. Adult tickets cost £4 and tickets for children under 16 are £3. Tickets are available from the school office.
  2. The next Bake 'n' Take will be on Monday 9th February at 3 p.m. at school.
