It is that time of year again and the staff and students at Beaconsfield Junior High are busy preparing Christmas food hampers for families in our school community. We have many families in our school community who are finding times hard especially during the holiday season. We here at Beaconsfield believe that every family should be able to enjoy a cooked meal and some holiday cheer.
Every holiday season at Beaconsfield approximately 12 families in need from our own school will receive a Christmas hamper. This can only be made possible by the school community’s help.
On each day of the “Twelve Days of Christmas,” students are asked to dress in a Christmas theme, and bring in a food item. The food items will be used to make Christmas Hampers for needy families. Also, we are asking every student to bring in a small monetary donation to help buy turkeys and grocery gift cards for our hampers.
Beaconsfield would like to thank all those who helped make the 4th annual “Saxons Invade Chapters” night such a success. Together we raised $997 in two hours. This will be put towards our year end awards ceremony. Again thanks to everyone who played a role in making this night such an incredible success, both financially and culturally.

BJH Creative Writing Club, “The Kids Are All Write” were delighted on Tuesday, November 12th with a song writing workshop with the wonderfully talented Darrell Power. Exploring the theme of Remembrance Day, students brainstormed and then split into groups to write three verses and a chorus. Darrell then added the melody and the whole group sang their song at the end! Thank-you Darrell for a wonderful workshop!
Next Day 5, “The Kids Are All Write” will be attending their third workshop with The Telegram’s NIE representative Carol Wadden!
