Bungay High School News

A GROUP of book lovers and keen writers had the privilege of meeting Sufiya Ahmed, the London based author of ‘Secrets of a Henna Girl’. The morning began with Sufiya giving the students a talk explaining her cultural background including her Muslim faith. This helped us understand the dilemma facing the main character in the story. The students then had an opportunity to act out one of the scenes from the book and after a short break it was time to get creative. Sufiya led the group through planning and writing our own chapter of the story. The results were amazing. As each student read out their ideas, it became apparent that our students have a vivid imagination and an imaginative use of vocabulary. It would not surprise any of us if one or more of the young people there became writers in the future. Jessica Rees in Year 7

entered a big talent contest at Kessingland Beach recently and was astounded when she had her name called out as winner at the end of the evening. Jessica has been practising with the school signing choir so decided to perform a number she had been learning recently. Bruno Mars hit ‘Count On Me’ is a powerful song when signed and it really caught the judges eyes! Jessica had to get through the 1st round during the day to be in the top ten, all of which then performed live in the evening. Jessica now has to go back to the Park finals in September and if she gets selected from this she will go to the national finals in front of a celebrity panel in November! Jessica wanted to thank the rest of the Signing Choir for their help and support, whilst we wish her all the best of luck and look forward to hearing how she does in front of the next judging panel. Bungay Taekwondo Club took along a small team to

compete and officiate in the 1st Open ITF International Competition and obtained some excellent


including: Frankie Howells Junior Sparring Green belt to red belt Silver, Malachi Fabian Junior Patterns and sparring white belt to green tag Double Bronze, Mr Gillett Veteran Black belt Sparring 3rd- 6th degree Bronze. Several other members of the club competed bravely in fierce divisions whilst Jacob Burden and Jade Howgate refereed all day. Beccles club (which is overseen by Mr Gillett and run by two of his black belts) also took along a small contingent and achieved some superb results; Bella Mazza-Gibson Junior Black belt patterns Gold, Joel Thrower Cadet Blue Belt Sparring Bronze, Jenna Akerman Senior Black belt Patterns Silver, Barbara Mazza Veteran Black belt Patterns Silver, with Sue and Nidge Bedingfield refereeing. As part of our PSHEE curriculum we aim to highlight to our students the importance of personal safety both at school and in the wider community. This includes ways of recognising and reducing risk, minimising harm and strategies for getting help in risky situations. It is well reported nationally that one of these potential harms is knife crime. In May, PCSO Norman Drew from Suffolk Police came to speak to all students in an assembly to raise awareness of the laws relating to the carrying of offensive weapons and potential strategies for managing peer pressure to carry weapons. The assembly highlighted the importance of keeping one another safe and reporting any concerns to a parent, family member or member of staff at school.

Local Charities combine to provide Bakare Bed

BECCLES and District Club along with the Beccles Diamond Jubilee in Sickness Fund, Beccles Helping Hands and Beccles Townlands Charity have all contributed to provide a Bakare Bed to Mrs Sue Foster due to her permanent ongoing health conditions. Lion President Chris said

“With the help of our friends from other Charities it is an honour and pleasure to be able to provide this Bakare Bed to Sue. She has suffered over the years with such courage and strength that we all felt it was the least we could do was to help her where we could and clearly this Bakare Bed is a very good place to start.” Sue Foster said, “I cannot

thank these organisations enough for this bed it has changed my whole life. As my illness is permanent and so debilitating I do need to rest as much as I can and before I received this bed I was merely surviving with only little or no sleep at all, now I am able to

Trail of Threads

2019 marks the 20th (china) anniversary of the Waveney branch of the Embroiderers’ Guild which was founded to

raise the profile of textile and stitched art. It was felt that this important event should

be marked in some way and an exhibition of members’ work based on the theme of ‘china’ will be displayed in shops throughout Beccles town from July 1st – August

31st entitled ‘Trail of Threads’. A list of participating shops with a map will be available at Beccles Library where there will also be a display cabinet of

other work by Guild members. For more information about

the Guild nationally visit or for local branch information chair.waveney@

rest when necessary and get a good night’s sleep. I am not having to wake my husband to ask him to help me move or adjust the pillows during the night, because with this wonderful versatile bed I can make the relevant adjustments myself, thus my husband and myself can both now have a good night’s sleep. Equally during the day I don’t have to call upon him to adjust things when I need to rest, I can do it all with this Bakare Bed, when I need to. It really has made such a difference to my life, I cannot thank these wonderful organisations that have helped

me enough, because my life is so different now.” Sue was very happy to demonstrate just how versatile the Bakare Bed was to those representatives from the Charities that had contributed to it. They were Doctor Tony Bubb from Beccles Diamond Jubilee in Sickness Fund, Mr Gary Johnson from Beccles Helping Hands and Mrs Gillian Campbell from Beccles Townlands Charity. Beccles Lions Welfare

Officer, Lion Dermot Wesley- Smith added, “Sue approached Beccles Lions Club asking if we could help. Naturally

we wanted to, so we spoke with our friends in the other Charities. After finding out more information and discussing it further with Sue, we all felt it was a very worthwhile project. It is at times like these that we have to acknowledge the very generous giving of others, this is where it really does shine. Without such giving we are not able to help others and change their lives as this Bakare Bed has done for Sue.” If you wish to know more
