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.
"“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.""
"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."
"This association was started with a lot of effort from a few local businessmen and has proved to be a very powerful and useful tool for our business. The BHBPA has influence at the top level; when action is needed, the BHBPA gets it done. We are kept in touch with all that is happening on our doorstep and will often act because of what is published in the weekly emails / newsletters."
"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."
