Welcome to our Community Noticeboard!

This is where we put links to interesting clubs, fun things to do, local events and anything else we can think of that you might like to enjoy out of school time.

We have put together an overview of clubs that we are aware of in the local community (please use the link below)- we would love to keep adding to this. If you know of something fun coming up, or you’re a member of a club and you’d like us to put a link on this page, please contact the school office or email Miss Ireland at kireland@bowerham.lancs.sch.uk.

Hadashi Karate at Bowerham

Karate

Karate is hosted at Bowerham School in the Lower Hall each Tuesday and is run by Sensei Andrea Carbon. You can apply for her classes and find out more about it at her website which is at http://hadashimartialarts-lancaster.co.uk/

Sensei Carbon also runs a scholarship called ‘The Nina Chenault Scholarship for Primary Academic and Athletic Development’ The scholarship provides karate tuition at no cost to student recipients but students need to train at least twice a week and maintain good standing and behaviour in school. Students will still be required to pay for club membership (licenses), gradings and karate uniforms, however, it is hoped that we might be able to obtain good second-hand uniforms through donations. Recipients from low income and disadvantaged backgrounds will be considered. Awards are limited to 5 at any one time. Please see the Hadashi website for more information.
