Revision with Pizza
It has been another exciting term for The Burgess Hill Academy English department and students. 97 of our year 11 learners got to enjoy a Papa John’s pizza as part of our ‘Pizza Club’ reward scheme. Over the past term students have been studying hard and attending the weekly revision sessions, earning a slice of pizza per session, and on Tuesday got to enjoy the fruits of their labour in pizza form.
Throughout the course of the term our students have been revising their set texts, from Macbeth to Jane Eyre and revising hard for their poetry and language papers. Our revision sessions help student consolidate and expand their knowledge and offer an opportunity for year 11s to get a little bit of extra help and support.
We would like to thank Papa John’s, Burgess Hill for helping us make the reward session such a success and look forward to the next one.
Rotary Club Young Musician Competition
Earlier this term, we were delighted to host the Rotary Club Young Musician competition. It was a very successful event.
Congratulations to Anya Arogyaswamy for winning through to the Rotary District final on 26th February.
Thank you not only to the Burgess Hill Rotary Club, but also to Mr Kirkby and students Dan Willis, Robbie Marsland and Luke Simpson who assisted with sound and lighting.
"As MP for Mid Sussex I believe passionately in the importance of a vibrant local business community in order to create and sustain fantastic opportunities that enable people to meet their responsibilities, prosper and fulfil their potential. I am committed to collaborating with BHBPA and others to be an effective collective voice for Burgess Hill."
"As the local hospice for the area, it’s great that we receive so much support from the BHBPA. Last year the members raised an amazing £2150 through activities such as Bake Off and the BHBiz Awards. Each well planned members meeting enables good networking opportunities and speakers that are relevant to the present climate and local issues. We are proud to be members of BHBPA."
"“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.”"
"“We have been members of BHBPA from its inception, and seen the organisation steadily grow and expand into the dynamic entity it is today, bringing positive benefits to all its members.""
