The Big Tea Dance – Dancing, Tea and Cakes at Fylingdale’s Village Hall – 24th May

The Junior School is gearing up for the Tea Dance from 2 – 5pm on Wednesday 24th May. This is part of The Big Help Out to mark the coronation of Kind Charles III – thousands of organisations across the UK have come together with the aims to “Join in. Lend a hand. Make a change.” We are inviting the whole community in Robin Hood’s Bay and the surrounding areas to participate and hope to bring people together for an afternoon of socialising, fun, dancing, music, a tombola (and tasty food and drink of course.).

As well as bringing everybody together The Big Tea Dance is raising funds for the wonderful Yorkshire Air Ambulance. We’re excited to be part of The Big Help Out and for the pupils to be able to learn more about creating an event and giving back to the community.

H.R. Higgins, the renowned coffee and tea merchant, and proud Royal Warrant Holder, are sponsoring the event so you can expect some wonderful teas and coffee to sample. Colebrooke Productions are also sponsoring and our pupils are loving their weekly dancing lessons. They are learning a tea-dance to perform as well as songs. School pupils will be learning all about tea production at school and even trying some teas so they might even offer you some expert advice on the 24th!

The Poster Competition

Pupils from across the Junior School took part in the poster competition during their Computer Science lessons. They had to consider elements of poster design and how to create a poster on a computer. They created some fantastic pieces of work. At Fyling Hall the Junior School benefit from lessons from specialist Senior School teachers and the senior school facilities.

H.R. Higgins marketing and PR manager, Carly Skelton, had the incredibly difficult task of choosing the winning entry. “All of them are so good in their own way, all the children have put in so much effort and each of them has something different. It was really hard to choose.”, she said. As you can see from the entries, above the pupils demonstrated their creativity and hard work and a lot of them stand out.

Eventually Carly selected Evan’s poster which now features on the event fliers. Congratulations to Evan and well done to everyone that took part.

We do hope to see many of you at Fylingdale’s Village Hall next Wednesday, 24th May for the Big Tea Dance (2-5pm) and would be delighted if you could help us spread the word about this event.
