1st April 2021 — Burgess Hill Girls organised a special Springtime Celebration event recently, raising over £3,400 for the Burgess Hill Foodbank.

Pupils and staff at the school have desperately missed many of the events that bring their community together throughout the year.

So, on the last day of the Spring Term, the school decided to organise a special Springtime Charity Event.

Throughout the day they ran activities across the whole school, from Nursery to Sixth Form, with a shared goal of raising funds for the Burgess Hill Foodbank.

In the Senior School and Sixth Form, with all pupils sticking to their year group bubbles, activities included football, Zumba and taking on the assault course.

Children in the Pre-Prep and Prep School enjoyed Easter-themed arts and crafts plus adventure trails around the school in Spring and Easter fancy dress.

In the Nursery, there was a special visit from the Springtime bunny and his chicken friend who joined in the fun with the parachute game.

The day ended with the School’s annual House Quiz, hosted by Sixth Form House Captains, and streamed live to the wider community.

Head Liz Laybourn said: "Burgess Hill Girls is always at our best when we come together to do our bit for the community.

"It has been a challenging year for us all so the Springtime Celebration was a fantastic way to mark the end of term and look forward to all the joys that summer will hopefully bring."

Burgess Hill Girls (Boys 2-4, Girls 2-18) is a day and boarding school in West Sussex.
