In January Parwich School Choir participated in ‘Young Voices’ at the Sheffield Arena, here is a YouTube clip of the first day of the event in Sheffield:
Parwich Primary School website is looking very impressive at present. It also has a lot of new photographs. The School Newsletter has fewer photographs, as children and their families can now see them on the website. Click on the images below for more photographs of recent School events on their website:
Can you help the School with their a World War II ‘Evacuation Day’ in January. Were you an evacuee, did your family host evacuees, or are you a Veteran?
Hi Parwich Blog,
I wonder if you can help me find someone to come in and help Parwich School with our latest Topic on World War 2. I am the Key Stage 2 teacher (ages 7-11) and the children have been having lots of fun learning about the last world war. Lots of parents have sent in war relics such as ration books and helmets and we are now planning an Evacuation Day on Tuesday 14th January 2014.
It is going to be a very authentic day with dressing up and rations for lunch (well not too authentic!) It would be wonderful if we could invite someone locally to visit during the day who experienced World War 2, either as an actual evacuee or who was a child in a host family or even a war veteran. The children could interview the guest and then write about their experiences. This would be a fantastic opportunity for the children and I really hope there is someone in the locality who can help!
Please can you ask everyone on the blog if they know anyone?
Thank you so much and looking forward to seeing if we get any responses.
Very best wishes,
Parwich Primary School
This looks like being a fantastic day for the children. If you are able to help either contact the School directly or email firstname.lastname@example.org and we will forward your message. Also feel free to share any relevant experiences as a comment below or email them to us to create a separate post.
Nia L sent this in to help encourage local folk to apply:

Thank you Helen for pointing out that putting our green tokens in the box for Brassington Brownies will help Parwich girls:
Please help Brassington Brownies.
This is the Brownie pack attended by girls from Parwich.
Each month Waitrose donate £1000 to be shared by 3 local groups. How much money each group receives is determined by the number of green tokens deposited by customers. During August, Brassington Brownies is one of the 3 choices and it would be great if you could support them.
We’ve got lots happening in Derbyshire this summer to keep children of all ages busy and entertained during the school holidays. Click on the link for more inforamtion
Best wishes to the leavers at their next School, and have a great Summer holiday to all for the Blog Team here at parwich.org.

An excellent evening, despite the unreliable weather, with an increased number of entrants in the Junior Race, and some excellent performances from local youngsters. There was a reduced number of runners in the main Senior Race, which was won by C Patterson in 18min 54sec, slower than his winning time last year (this was over a different course because of the very wet conditions), but faster by 5sec than the 2011 winning time over the same course.
The quickest home in the Junior Race was D Evans in 12min 32sec, faster than his winning time of 13min 12sec last year.
Here are the winners in the various categories: (more…)
