Newsletter Issue 31
On Monday 13th May the Years 3 and 4 girls represented the school in a football tournament at the Compton Power League. The girls had a hard draw, playing against last year’s winners.
They didn't let that dampen their spirits though. The girls did us proud by winning two matches, losing two matches and drawing one. Louisa scored five goals, Evel two and Saphora one. The girls reached the round of the last sixteen, and tried very hard, playing with great sportsmanship. Well done girls!
Walk To School Week
It's Walk to School Week next week! This year we will be taking part in the 5 day walking challenge. Every child will be given a walking to school diary to complete and we will be having a class competition to see which class can walk to school the most!
However it's not just for this week! A generation ago, 70% of us walked to school – now it’s less than half. We want children to be energised and empowered and we want children and parents to make walking to school their natural choice every day.
So we need your help. Go to http://www.livingstreets.org.uk/walk-toschool to check out ideas for ways to get you and your family walking, and download the Family Walk to School Kit, designed to help Parents, carers and children make the walk to school work for them.
The school would like to thank all the people who volunteered and attended the Quiz Night last Friday Night. We raised £260.00 for the school, on what proved to be a very enjoyable evening.
Friends of Hollickwood
Dear Parents, Carers and Friends of Hollickwood school,
I’m writing to you on behalf of the PTA / Friends of Hollickwood school in order to ask for your help in arranging our school’s summer fair. The summer fair will take place on Saturday the 6th of July 12:00 p.m.- 3:00 p.m. It’s very important to support our school through the summer fair because all the money raised will be used in order to improve our school facilities and further our children’s way to knowledge and education.
How you can help:
*By coming to the fair and by asking your friends and neighbours to come and support our school.
*By spreading the word about our summer fair.
*By donating your time and volunteering to help run a stall during the summer fair.
*By putting up an advertising board outside your property. Greene & Co estate agents very kindly decided to support our school by donating £500. We have to offer 50 properties where they can put up their boards, stating that they support our school and our summer fair. If you or your friends or neighbours own or rent a property in the local area and would be willing to help, please provide us with your address and an agents’ board will be put up outside your home.
*By donating goods, that are in a good condition and preferably in their original boxes to be used for our hampers, tombola and raffle prizes. The better the prizes the more the money that we could raise.
*By asking people who you know, work with, shop with or do businesses with to support our summer fair by donating prizes for our raffle, tombola, hampers etc.
Keep in mind that all the money we raise is for our children. Our children who deserve to be happier, more educated and more protected in order to stay in a school community that makes them feel safe and comfortable.
Please contact your children’s teacher, or class rep or me (Anna Dalla, Theodore’s, year 4 and Alexandro’s, year 1 mum) if you have any ideas or are willing to help.
