The Robin - 23 June 2019

A very Happy Father's Day to all!

Here's your FoBS round up for this week...

Less than 1 week to go to The Greatest Summer Fair!

A huge THANK YOU from the Fair Committee for all your fabulous Mufti Day donations and thank you also to everyone who has already signed up to help on the day. If you'd like to help and haven't volunteered yet, there's still time - just speak to your class rep or email us at the usual FoBS address!

Trolleys will be out all week for any further donations and for anyone who forgot to bring theirs in on Friday.

Calling All Trained First Aiders! Any parents/carers who are qualified First Aiders and would be free to give us just half an hour of your time at the fair to cover the First Aid station, please get in touch. You don't need to be DBS Checked and you don't need to bring anything - First Aid kits provided! We still need more helpers to join the First Aid rota. Many thanks.

Cakes and Bakes! As is traditional, there'll be a Cake Stall at the Summer Fair so we need your lovely donations of cakes and home-made goodies please. (Remember, we're a nut-free school). They can either be left in the trolleys which will be out this coming Friday or brought to the Fair on the day. If you would like your cake boxes and tins back, please make sure they are clearly labelled with your child's name and class so that they can be returned to you.

Burger Kings (and Queens!) If you're a whizz on the BBQ, we're looking for a few helpers to cook and sizzle those burgers - please get in touch if you can give us a hand.

Gardening Shout Out!

The FoBS team invites Burhill families to donate any unwanted gardening items. Which they will plant throughout our beautiful school. On Tuesday 18th June there will be a table out at the Flagpole entrance.

  • seeds

  • gardening tools

  • cuttings

  • plants of all shapes and sizes

  • house plants welcome too

  • terracotta pots

Anything that is particularly bee-friendly will be planted close to the school apiary for our lucky bees. Any questions about growing at our school you are warmly invited to email

URGENT PLEA: We Need A Fireworks Committee!

We desperately need a Fireworks Committee to organise this hugely popular event. Time is running out and we fear it won't go ahead this year unless we can find some fabulous volunteers - please, please get in touch if you can help.

Volunteers WhatsApp Group

Even if you can only spare half an hour of your time, it really does make a difference. If you'd like to help, join our Volunteers WhatsApp Group and we'll put a shout out when we need help - if you're available, just let us know! Just reply to the usual FoBS email address and include your name, child's class and year and your phone number.
