BJS Bulletin


Plantagenet Drive, Rugby, CV22 6LB 22ND MARCH 2019

HeadlinesBILTON C OF E £412 raised for the Ups
of Downs charity—

Hello there,

SPECIAL The highlight of this week has definitely been raising money and awareness of Down
POINTS OF syndrome for the 'Ups of Downs' charity.
The Ups of Downs provides services for families, in Warwickshire and the surrounding
BJS Art counties, who have a child with Down syndrome. These include weekly activity groups,
competition— specialist training for parents and teaching professionals and specialist Speech and
details on the Language Therapy sessions for the children.
last page of the
They are always looking for supporters to work with them to provide learning
bulletin interventions and training and to be part of our advocacy role in working towards people with
Down syndrome being valued and accepted as a normal element of the society we all live in.

The money we have raised, in its entirety, directly improve a child’s life. All administrators and
Trustees are volunteers and take no financial reward for the work they do for The Ups of
Downs. If you wish to find out more about how you could support the charity then please visit
their web page.

I guess the reason we hold this charity close to our hearts is that we have supported a child,
who is now in his last year with us at BJS who has Down syndrome. The child and his family
have been a blessing to us and we wanted to give something back to the charity they are
involved with.

I must say at this point that the children who have grown up with the boy in question have
really benefited from the relationship that has grown between them. I have never met such a
genuinely lovely class of children and I have no doubt that this is in part due to the
relationship they have developed.

Kind regards,
Mrs Norton

Cross Country Team

Twelve children from year 6 have represented BJS
in the primary schools cross country trials.
This took place over 3 different courses, with over
80 other children from Rugby schools competing
to represent Rugby in the finals. Pupils at BJS
battled for the top 20 positions to give them the
chance to compete in the final.

Throughout the trials most BJS children finished in
the top 10—A massive well done to the cross
country team!

We have just heard 5 children from BJS have
made it to the finals and will be representing
Rugby on the 23rd March.
I hope you will join the school in wishing those
children all the best and good luck for Saturday.

Thank you to everyone who came to our science afternoon to celebrate Science
week. The week began with a fascinating assembly about the journey of recycling
presented by one of our parents, Mrs Harlock. Years 3, 4 and 5 then investigated a
variety of journeys from nurons to light and electricity. It was wonderful to see so
many parents, grandparents and other family members come into school on Thursday
afternoon and the children really enjoyed sharing their investigations with you.
