We are delighted to announce that we have secured a place at the Durham Miners Gala this year as part of the wider work we are doing to promote your children’s book ‘From the Ground Up‘.
On Saturday 9th July we will have a stall at the Racecourse in Durham as part of the wider celebration of mining commonly known as ‘The Big Meeting’. Typically attendance at The Big Meeting is around 200 000 people, so this really is a wonderful opportunity.
This will be a great chance for some of our students to talk to interested parties and no doubt the local press about their work on sharing the stories of our mining heritage.
Of course we will also make some sales of our book, the profits of which all go back into the school and providing a fantastic education.
Given that this is a Saturday, we are looking for families that are perhaps interested in coming along to the Gala for the day, and would also loan us your child for a few hours to help support at our stall.
Mrs Mosley and Mr Said will be there throughout the event to support the students.
If you or your child are interested, then please contact Mr Said for more details on timings etc.
