There was a slightly controversial entry in this evening’s first race (unless congratulations are in order for one of the competitors, well here’s hoping).

Local Mother’s Race
(Paula Lynam Trophy)

  1. H Pitts
  2. L Maddocks
  3. S Chadfield

The evening started with fantastic weather, but as the preparations for the Junior Race began, a heavy shower settled over Parwich. This made conditions very slippery, and the rain only began to abate as the last runners reach the summit of the Hill. It was very impressive to see particularly the younger children battling the steep slope and the heavy rain together.

  2. J Buckley

School Website up-date

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,

Kim Peatfield
KS2 Teacher
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 parwich@hotmail.co.uk 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.
