If you have just joined us, F@B is your Parent Teacher Association (PTA) – a group of volunteer parents/carers whose aim is to create events which provide opportunities for Bessemer families to socialise and enjoy themselves, and in doing so raise money for the school. And the more people involved with F@B the merrier.
Read the following report to find out what we have done this year!
School’s out for Summer!
What a great end to the year – the Summer Fair raised over £3000! The day wasn’t possible without people’s support and generous contributions, so thank you to everyone who helped make the fair the success and fun day in the sun that it turned out to be.
Bessemer was lucky enough to be chosen as a Sustrans ‘Bike It’ school, and loads of teachers and pupils are cycling to school. So many that we sometimes don’t have enough space to put all the bikes! We are going to raise money for improved bike storage by doing a Sponsored Bike Ride and Scoot during National Bike Week . If you can help with organisation in advance or help out on the day, please contact Henrietta Collier (firstname.lastname@example.org) to volunteer. We’ll need help from cyclists and non-cyclists, with refreshments, marshalling the event and monitoring our total distance cycled.
