Welcome back to school after what I hope was a good break. I'm really looking forward to this school year as I'm sure it's going to be a fantastic one in which our school will continue to grow and thrive.

Our staff is relatively stable, which is a real plus. Recruiting teachers is becoming increasingly difficult and many schools are facing real difficulties with this. We were very sad to see Emma Wilkinson leave us right at the end of last term and this has left us shorthanded in the office, thank you for your patience and understanding and thanks to staff who have stepped in to cover, especially Lenka. We hope to be able to confirm the appointment of a new school administrator very soon.

We welcome Muhammad Ajaz to our school as our new IT technician. Deenah McElhinney has increased her hours and is the Grimms' class teacher in year 4. Chantelle Playfair has also increased her hours and is working in Breakfast Club, as a Mealtime Supervisor and in the After School Club. We have a great staff team at our school and we had a very productive day on Monday, working on the school's improvement plan and getting the classrooms ready for the children's return.

Andy Dunham, our wonderful Premises Manager, worked hard over the summer break and got lots of improvements and repairs done, and the cleaning team did a great job under his supervision, thank for your excellent work!

I hope you and your children enjoy this year at Hollickwood, I'm looking forward to sharing all of the terrific learning and growing that are ahead. Thank you all for your ongoing support for our school.

What a great week we have had, firstly children from Years 3,4,5 and 6 took part in a Science fair hosted by APS. Our fantastic scientists made Hollickwood very proud on Tuesday.

Not only have they designed amazing projects for the Science Fair but they were also confident to talk about their enquires and findings in front of the judges and teachers from six schools!

The day was filled with presentations of projects and practical investigations. The children made their own torches in a school lab. They
