BBest Community

BBEST Community Hub launched at Batley Town Hall

Batley Town Hall was alive with the launch of the BBEST Community Hub on Wednesday 25 April. The collaboration of the 20 schools in Batley and Birstall was celebrated with wonderful enthusiasm at the community event. Over 30 community groups and organisations joined together to showcase some of the good things going on in the area and launch the Hub to the parents and carers in the 20 schools.

Throughout the afternoon there were performances from the choirs at St Peters CofE Junior and Infant School, Birstall Primary Academy, Field Lane Junior and Infant School, inspiring speeches from the boys at Upper Batley High School, rousing campaigning from children at Warwick Road, impressive solo performances from students at Batley Grammar School – we are lucky to have some very talented children in our schools and some inspirational tecahers who are supporting them

Over 400 people enjoyed the performances, refreshments, raffle and celebration of all things great about the area.

The BBEST Community Hub is made up of 20 schools in the Batley and Birstall area – putting that another way; the BBEST Hub is working for the families of more than 7600 children locally, approximately 14% of the school children in Kirklees! The aim of the Hub is to support the community so that the children can learn effectively and reach their full potential in the 20 schools.

The winning raffle numbers have been published on the new website – prizes can be collected, on presentation of a winning ticket, at Field Lane J&I School.
