April 1st, 2019 Comments off

Harrow Way Community School has launched an exciting new initiative to deliver certificated first aid training to all Key Stage 4 students. ‘Be Ready’, part of the school’s ambitious Careers Education Programme, has been designed to give students highly valued additional skills and qualifications.

As a registered centre Harrow Way’s Site and Facilities Manager Steve Badby is fully qualified to deliver the training which also includes all staff first aiders. Commenting on the project he said: “We are currently trialling ‘Be Ready’ with small groups of students. Once they have completed their six hours of training, which we are delivering around the students’ normal timetable, they will be awarded the Level 3 Emergency First Aid at Work qualification – a great addition to their CVs!” Read more…

KS1 Cluster – TRIGolf Festival

March 28th, 2019 Comments off

On Tuesday 26th March, Harrow Way hosted the Cluster KS1 TRIGolf festival. This brought together nearly fifty children from the Harrow Way Cluster group to try their hand at some challenging and fun new skills. We saw children chip and putt their way around a circuit of challenges in attempt to score the most points before the buzzer, helped as always by Harrow Way’s exceptional Sports Leaders. Appleshaw eventually picked up the win but fun was the order of the day and the children left with big smiles and a new set of skills. A big thank you to all our participants and our Leaders.

Primary Town Football Tournament

March 22nd, 2019 Comments off

On Thursday 21st March. Harrow Way hosted the Primary Town Football tournament. This involved sixteen teams across two rounds of competition and over one hundred and fifty budding footballers. With competition at an all time high and Balksbury not willing to release their grip on the Cup every team fared well in the preliminary rounds with goal scoring kept low throughout.

Once teams hit their stride in the knock out phase the keepers were made to work hard and the finishing was of an exceptionally high level. A special mention to Portway C who collected the Fair Play Award for sporting behaviour during the first rounds. The eventual winners of the Plate competition were Balksbury B and the eventual Champions of the Cup competition were Anton A. A huge congratulations to our winners and a fantastic effort from all other teams.

Jez Rolfe, Year 10 Lily Beetles, Year 9
In January, Photography Students were set the challenge to take photographs for a live competition run by the Rotary Club. Students were required to take a portfolio of 3 images responding to the theme ‘The Beauty of Nature’. There were over 100 entries from year 9 and 10 students and even more from schools across the country. I’m pleased to say both Jez Rolfe and Lily Beetles were awarded the position of runner up in each of their age categories. A very well done indeed to Lily and Jez and to everyone else who entered; a fantastic experience for all. I hope you enjoy viewing their photographs as much as we have!
