PTA Quiz Night

Thank you to everyone attended the PTA Quiz Night on Saturday 23rd May.
13 teams competed over 8 rounds of questions and table sheets. A grand total of £530 was raised for the PTA funds. A big thank you must go to Nicky Upton and her husband who compiled the questions and ran the evening for us.
It was a fantastic evening and so well attended. We look forward to doing more of these evenings in the future.

Hickling Broad Nature Reserve

On Tuesday 24th May, 12 very excited children and 3 enthusiastic adults; Mrs Evett-Collins, Miss Brady and Mr Kingman, left school to venture North towards Norfolk for an overnight stay in Sheringham Youth Hostel and a day at Hickling Broad Nature Reserve.
The minibus trip was incredibly interesting as Mr Kingman pointed out deer, bat bridges and lots of farming and agricultural land features in Suffolk and Norfolk. He knew the area extremely well.

Schools’ Parliament Event

On Friday 17th March Herne Bay Junior School hosted the annual Schools’ Parliament event.  Nine local schools brought their School Council members along for a morning of debates around behaviour in school.  Roger Gough, Cabinet member for Education and Health Reform took time out of his busy schedule to act as Chair and he seemed to enjoy it as much as the children!
There were six topics up for debate – attendance, uniform, behaviour for learning, lunchtime, play time and homework.  The children whose ages ranged from 6 – 11yrs were full of opinions and ideas relating to all these topics and some great suggestions were put forward for all the schools to take away and discuss in their own setting.
All in all a hugely successful morning bringing children together to learn the art of debating.
