Folk at Bury school

A reminder that Bury CE Primary School are inviting parishioners to 30 minutes of Folk this Thursday 28th Jan at 4pm when their music teacher and folk singer, Mr Mott, will lead everyone in three traditional folk songs. The words are available now on the school’s website along with the link to join the event. Whilst everyone is invited, parents of school-aged children should be aware there is reference to drinking ale so please ensure you are happy with the content of the songs if you wish you and your children to join in. For a link to the webpage for the event please see here.

News from Bury school

Thomas Moore, head teacher at Bury School, has kindly invited residents to take part in a special event being organised to bring a little cheer into our lives during these rather gloomy times and writes as follows: –
“Before Christmas I had the intention of trying to share some live singing – unfortunately, the second lockdown and a stretched staff meant that had to be abandoned. However, we are now looking to offer something a little different. We are hoping to provide a singalong with our music teacher, Mr Mott. This will be traditional local folk songs and is very much an offer to the community rather than to the children here at school (although I dare say some will follow it). All anyone needs to do is click on the link Sussex Folk with Bury CE Primary 4pm Thursday Jan 28th. It will only be for half an hour – we’ve never attempted it before so are hoping it works. We have an in-school dry run with staff this Thursday. Our aim is to provide a little connection for people in a time when people are not getting to socialise”.

Bury School and the Big PTA Raffle

Friends of Bury School tell us they have joined The Big PTA Raffle 2020 which gives participants the chance to win some big money prizes whilst helping to raise funds for the school and they would very much welcome the support of local residents.

For every £3 ticket purchased you will have 12 chances to win up to £5,000 and at the same time 50% from every ticket sold will go to the PTA. It’s a fantastic way to bring Parents, Carers, Teachers and the wider community together, in partnership with the PTA, and at the same time give something back. It is hoped to raise funds that can support and enrich the education of the children – the PTA aim to provide extra resources for the children, improve the school environment as well as run extracurricular activities such as music, art and sport. Full details of the raffle and how to enter can be found here.

Thomas Moore, head teacher at Bury School, informs us that they are also raffling off 3 x 1lb jars of the first ever Bees of Bury School (BOBS) Honey for £1 per entry (to win one jar). Again, anyone can enter, they just need to pop along to school between 9:30 and 14:30 (to avoid crossing with parents) with their £1 coin (or more if you prefer!) and name and contact details.
