Friends of Hollickwood
We’re all Friends of Hollickwood
Every family that joins Hollickwood is a valued member of our PTA (parent-teacher association) which we call “Friends of Hollickwood”. Like most other PTA organisations we hold social events like the Summer Fair, Fireworks Night and class cafes, raising funds to make our children's learning experience more exciting. Past contributions include Literacy Trust book benches, our Secret Garden, playground equipment as well as trips, workshops and theatre performances. We are committed that all contributions, whether it is donations or volunteering are for the benefit of the 207 children that attend our primary school.
Hollickwood Happy Hedge
We’re proud to announce that we will be running a crowdfunding campaign throughout November this year to benefit the exterior of the school. As part of this there will be a competition for the hedge design. Find out more about the project over at Spacehive.

Follow the friends:
Joining the PTA is a great way to get to know the school’s community and even make new friends. We need new volunteers to organise or help out at events, or to be a class rep, keeping parents and staff up to date with Friends news. You don't have to make a big commitment - baking for a cake sale, organising quiz prizes or contacting local businesses for donations are all incredibly helpful.
It is really important to the school and our children that ALL parents/carers have a chance to get involved. We would like the Class Reps to represent the diversity of the school community, and would like both dads and mums, working and non-working parents to help out. Everyone is welcome.
