On Thursday Charley, Annabelle and Henry, who were elected as some of our Junior Leadership Team, visited BGL Group in Wakefield. They did a presentation on behalf of all the children and staff at Parkside to the managers of the company. This presentation was to ask BGL if they would support Parkside’s fundraising for a trim trail. So far over the past year with the help of parents, children and staff we have raised around £7000 and with a further £8000 from the governments Sports Premium Funding we currently have a total of £15,000. Our target is around £20,000. Charley, Annabelle and Henry were amazing! They impressed the staff and managers at BGL group so much that they have agreed to help us!!! They have promised us a donation and would also like to do some fundraising for us so please watch this space!!
We are also really grateful to Tanya, Charley’s mum who organised this partnership – thank you so much for all your help!!
Everyone at Parkside is looking forward to working with the staff at BGL. I would also like to say thank you to Jamie Lyons, Stephanie Lagrange, Amanda Grice and Sharon Davies at BGL who were so impressed with Charley, Annabelle and Henry they were given a special gift from the company!! Well done, I am so proud of you all 😀
October is here which means we’ve been back at school for 5 weeks. As you all know, my favourite time of the week is our Celebration Assembly and this Friday we heard about some of the amazing achievements of our children. Well done to Max for his gold medal in the European Karate Championships in Manchester! All of our children are working so hard and every week I look forward to seeing the work they have done. A big thank you also to all of our parents and families who support us each week, this means such a lot to the children, staff and myself. So here’s to lots more assemblies…lots more achievements and so many opportunities to be proud of our children. Thank you Parkside, you’re awesome 😀!
New year, new start! We are all so excited to be back at Parkside for the start of the new school year. It has been a fantastic week, our children’s behaviour and eagerness to learn has been awesome this week and everyone has made a brilliant start! We are very lucky to have welcomed two new teachers this week, Miss Hopkinson in Year 1 and Miss Drake who is Year 6 teacher and leader of Key Stage 2. The highlight of my week as always was our Rewards Assembly this afternoon. It was fantastic to see our new pupils of the week and our outstanding writers. Their pictures will appear on class blogs early next week when our ICT technician swaps our blogs over!
2016-17 was a fantastic year for Parkside. Together we got some of the best results in the whole of Barnsley and our children’s progress is amongst the best in the country! We are so proud of all our children and their parents who work really hard. Together I know we can make 2017-18 an even better year!
