Careers Fair 2018

What a fantastic opportunity we had today! The careers fair took place at Springwell. We had providers such as Barnsley Football Club, The Army, Barnsley College, TIAG etc. Some pupils even took part in army drills.

Thank you to all providers and all classes and AAs for attending. I am sure all pupils found out a lot of information about potential future careers.

Making model dens….

Year 7 thought about what materials a homeless person would use to build a den to get away from the inclement weather. They then built model dens.

Sensory toy making in Year 7

This morning we made some sensory balloons with rice. Next week we will try flour and the week after sand. This way we will be able to compare how it feels with different fillings.

Refu-Tea coffee morning at Springwell

We had a great time this morning sharing a cup of tea and a bun for a good cause. It was lovely to see parents, pupils and staff getting together and being very generous. A special thank you to all bakers, fakers and helpers for making this happen.

Terry from the Drop In project visits Springwell

Today we were very fortunate to meet Terry who helps run a soup kitchen for homeless people in Barnsley. He talked to us about the reasons people become homeless and he described to us what they do for these people 3 times a week.

Thank you Terry for helping us understand the predicament of homeless people better!
