Note from the Chairperson



Welcome to the Friends of Barnsole Fundraising  Committee section of the School website.

I am Jacqui Morton and I am Chairperson of the Friends of Barnsole Fundraising Committee. I am also the HLTA in Stars Class/Foundation Stage.

We are a friendly bunch of staff, parents and members of the community that work closely, with the Senior Leadership Team, to organise and run, fun fundraising events to benefit the children. 

We are always looking for new members and fundraising ideas, so if you are interested please do not hesitate to contact us, via our Friends email address, which is friends@barnsole  Please see our Welcome leaflet/latest Newsletter for further details of who we are/what we do etc.

Any help or time you can spare would be very much appreciated! Please join in the fun & games and get involved!

We look forward to another year of happy, successful fundraising!

Kind regards

 “I’m not a Celebrity!” Challenge:

A well-deserved medal was awarded to Lewis Harrold after he completed his challenge.

This involved eating both a cricket and a mealworm!

Well done Lewis and watch out Ant and Dec; Lewis will be joining you in the jungle very soon!

Barnsole’s Got Talent Contest:

Our three judges were Jamie Johnson from, ‘The Voice’, Mr Daniels, Chair of Governors and Miss Clark, Year 1 teacher.

After some serious deliberation, they unanimously agreed that Edmund Crosland was to be the overall winner.

Congratulations to Edmund for his amazing guitar playing and very well done to everyone else who entered…

   “…Barnsole definitely does have a lot of talent!”
