Dr Martin – Community Outreach Staff Leader vjm@beckfootthornton.org

This group of student leaders is working to engage positively with our local community.

Students are developing projects which will allow us to bring local people into school to see what we do, and to encourage Beckfoot Thornton students to get involved with groups in and around Bradford.

Our first event is a fact-finding trip to City Hall to talk to local councillors and Council Leader Susan Hinchcliffe to find out what Bradford needs from its young leaders!

The students are also busy organising a very special event – the re-launch of Crackerteria – a lunch and Christmas concert for older local residents.

Christmas Jumper Day in aid of a local food bank is also planned for the end of term.

The group is made up of Y8, Y10 and Y12 students who are forming teams with different expertise to run aspects of each event.  So… if you are a budding events co-ordinator or if you have a passion for fundraising, publicity or music then come and join the Community Outreach Leaders – we need more Y8 students especially!
