BBEST Hub Launch on The Press & Batley News
A NEW community hub aimed at bringing children from Batley and Birstall schools together was launched at Batley Town Hall last week.
Batley and Birstall Excellence in Schools Together (BBEST) is a collaboration of 20 schools to provide support for families and promote community cohesion as well as give advice and educational opportunities.
Pupils from St Peter’s Church of England Junior, Birstall Primary Academy, Field Lane Junior and Infant, Upper Batley High and Batley Grammar schools performed at the launch event on Wednesday. Some gave speeches while others sang on stage.
Over 400 people turned out to enjoy the performances, refreshments, a raffle and to support the new venture.
