We are looking for parent volunteers who can speak a foreign language. This would involve ideally one or two hours a week to help our French, German and Spanish year 11s practise their speaking, conversational and pronunciation skills.
The Academy is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people, and the successful applicant must provide satisfactory references and will be subject to clearance by the Disclosure & Barring Service.
If you can help, please contact Mr Verniol at the academy firstname.lastname@example.org
In a cold weekend of December, Mr Kirkby, Miss Elliott and Mr Verniol had the pleasure of taking a delightful group of German linguists, from years 9 to 11, to Cologne in Germany. In only 36 hours, they visited five Christmas markets and a small chocolate factory. The warm waffles and homemade Bratwurst helped them all to prompt their speaking in the language. A successful trip that surely will be repeated.
"The BHBPA is the most effective and dynamic business organisation I have ever worked with in over 30 years in Local Government. It has a very active and large membership whose points of view are taken seriously by all government structures. Peter Liddell does an excellent job in providing unique and enjoyable networking opportunities where members interact and discuss points of mutual interest. It provides a forum for businesses to discuss common issues, to share experiences and to play a powerful and meaningful role in the Burgess Hill community. The BHBPA provides important and credible support for all its members and ensures that their best interests are represented where necessary. "
""BHBPA is a really well organised and run group, great for networking and benefitting from knowledgeable local speakers with real business insight. Peter brings enthusiasm and humour which helps drive the association forward. I am glad to be part of it.""
"“Sutton Winson have been members of the BHBPA for around 7 years. We have found it a great way to keep in touch with Burgess Hill businesses and to meet with likeminded people. It’s not just another “networking” group, as it tackles the real issues and gets things done”"
"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. "
