This was taken from the latest Oakmeeds newsletter :-
For each full week your child attended College last term, their name was placed in the Christmas
end of term draw. For those with 100% attendance, this resulted in them having their names in
the draw fourteen times and every student had the opportunity to be in the draw at least once.
Thanks to the generosity of the Burgess Hill Business Parks Association, we
were able to purchase a Kindle Paperwhite for each Year group as their main prize.
The lucky winners of the Kindle’s were:-
Year 7 Harrison Wallond
Year 8 Lauren Cox
Year 9 Hannah Crouch
Year 10 Jack Woodford
Year 11 Stephanie Le Pape
Congratulations to the winners, and indeed all our students, for their efforts to keep their
College attendance at a high level. The next end of term draw will take place just before the
Easter break. The main prizes are yet to be decided – any ideas your child may have
should be voiced to Mrs Bland, our Attendance Manager, or their Tutor.
Should any parents/carers know of any local business that might like to sponsor these
upcoming awards, please do not hesitate to contact Mrs Bland, who would be only too
pleased to discuss this with you.
"The BHBPA is an energetic and vocal organisation that connects and empowers and informs the local business community acting as an effective conduit to local authority and other organisations. We are proud to be part of that community and the association."
"“I have belonged to this group since I started my own business, Lea Graham Associates, in 1986. The association has been through several incarnations since then, but its most recent one, BHBPA, is by far the best.
It’s much more than just a networking group, although it is supremely good at that too. BHBPA is inclusive and friendly and acts like a mutual-support society. The events are stimulating, worthwhile and often great fun and I believe most members share this opinion.”"
"I am delighted to have a long-standing relationship with the BHBPA. Since its foundation the Association has gone from strength to strength and there is no doubt that it has brought huge benefits to its members and the business community as a whole through the partnerships it has formed with the local authorities, Sussex Police and local organisations. It is paramount that Burgess Hill businesses have an effective collective voice."
"If Carlsberg did networking they would do it the BHBPA way. Each event is packed with great ideas, thought provoking presentations and fun. As a small business we feel supported and part of the community. We have built friendships and business relationships and there is always plenty of advice on hand to benefit us all so don’t hesitate to join whatever the nature of your business. "
