Young People’s Academy and The Skills Hub Summer Fayre

On Friday 1st July 2016, Young People’s Academy and The Skills Hub joined forces for their first very wet Summer Fayre! They didn’t let the rain stop them though, as they enjoyed a range of activities from football to sumo wrestling and there were a number of stalls and games to help raise funds for the Variety Club.

Special guests for the day included the Mayor of Hillingdon, Councillor John Hensley and his wife, and Bikers Against Child Abuse (B.A.C.A).  B.A.C.A has been established in the USA for 20 years and in the UK for nearly three years. All members undertake continual training and development in working with children, and in particular those with a history of abuse (physical, emotional, sexual and domestic). Their focus is on empowering the child to realise how powerful they can become. After their dramatic entrance to the fayre, they literally came roaring in, it soon became apparent that they were the star attraction of the day.

The Met Police also joined in the festivities and helped to cook the BBQ!

“The Summer Fayre provided an opportunity for students, staff and parents from both schools to get together and celebrate their successes and achievements this academic year. The weather did not deter the festivities nor did it the BBQ. A good day was had by all and we are all looking forward to next year”. Laurie Cornwell. Executive Headteacher at The Skills Hub and Young People’s Academy.
