This week marked the start of remote learning owing to the UK lockdown. I am delighted to report that pupils, parents and staff have taken on the challenge with fantastic enthusiasm. Here is a small snapshot of what we have been up to.
Congratulations to Bede’s Upper Fifth pupil and 1st XI Footballer Ollie Hobden, who has been signed by Charlton Athletic Football Club on a two-year professional contract.
We received lots of fantastic entries for our FOBP Baking Competition, including a delicious Christmas pavlova, cupcakes, brownies and plenty of iced biscuits.
On the last day of term, pupils and staff got into the festive spirit with another fantastic Christmas Cake Decorating Competition.
Pupils have been busy getting practical with a range of fun, Christmas-themed experiments in Science lessons (both on site and remotely).
Bede's Prep pupils, families and staff have been getting into the festive spirit by donating to a range of local charity Christmas appeals.
Many thanks to all pupils and staff who contributed towards our Hailsham Foodbank Christmas campaign. Over 320kg of food and 100 gifts were donated altogether!
Freya Palmer (Upper Sixth Art Scholar) has curated an open-air 'Lockdown' art exhibition, which celebrates the work of Bede's pupils from March to November this year.
We are very proud to announce that Bede's now has its very own wild orchard, comprising thirty birch, rowan and cherry trees.
In exciting news, our Eco Committee met for the first time last week to put plans in place to secure our Eco Schools Green Flag status.
