On Tuesday 18th June, some of our budding Olympic Athletes went to Allianz Park in Mill Hill for an Athletics Competition. The children competed against many other Barnet Schools. They all did very well and had a great day, they did their school proud. Go Hollickwood!

Year 2 Trip To Parliament Hill Fields 18th June
On Tuesday Year Two braved the wet weather and went on a trip to Parliament Hill Fields where they did a workshop 'Mad about Maps'. The children learnt to find landmarks using a map and read maps using a key. It was a great day and, despite getting a little wet, everyone was in great spirits and good fun was had by all !
Volunteering for Barnet Libraries, Summer 2019
If you are aged 14 -17 and think you might have some spare time during your summer holidays, then why not have a go at volunteering with Barnet Libraries?
Every year Barnet runs the Summer Reading Challenge in its libraries, encouraging children aged 4 – 11 to read six books over their summer holidays. Do you think you could spare up to 8 hours to help us promote the Challenge? Your role would involve signing children up to the scheme, giving out stickers and prizes as they read their books and helping out at the fun activities that we’ve got planned! In return we can give you a reference and your hours will count towards your DofE award or Arts Award.
We are looking for young volunteers at the following libraries:
- Burnt Oak
- Chipping Barnet
- East Finchley
- Finchley Church End
- Golders Green
- North Finchley
More information and an application form can be downloaded here.
Alternatively, send them by post to:
