Badley Celebration Weekend

Badley Celebration Weekend provides an opportunity to bring students and staff together in celebration of the school’s unique spirit. This year’s activities will allow us to engage with our beautiful natural environment, using heads, hands and hearts to focus on nature. The Whole School Effort will see us donning wellies and planting cherry trees, while Tools for Self Reliance will encourage groups to put their practical skills to use for a good cause. We have invited a range of guests to the school who will share their passions and interests: Robin Harford will take students on foraging walks around the estate, while others will take a more energetic approach with Olly Hermon-Taylor’s outdoor Movement and Lifestyle workshops. Poetry walks and falconry displays, lantern making, tapestry weaving and mural painting will all form part of the weekend. Waterproofs are a must! Sixth formers will be meeting Old Bedalians who attended the school in the 1920s/30s, who are returning for a reunion on Sunday 22nd. On Saturday 21st at 4pm, Graham and Louise Banks are returning to open the Sam Banks Pavilion – parents are warmly invited – please email Mary Hancox if you would like to come.
