We recently had the pleasure of nominating Hannah, our Head Student Librarian, for the 2019 Pupil Library Assistant of the Year award. The awards, organised by the School Library Association and CILIP School Library Group, recognise the hard work of students and their new skills. We’re keeping our fingers crossed for Hannah, who has made a huge contribution to our library making it the heart of the school since we opened in 2016.
Thank you to everyone who donated to Children In Need this year. We are very pleased to announce that the school raised a total of £953.00 which is absolutely fantastic! This wonderful amount was raised by holding a non uniform day and also number of other events that were organised by the Art department. These included, fill the Pudsey, a sponsored silence, dangling donuts and a paper aeroplane contest.
It was fantastic to see some of our Year 7 & 8 students working alongside pupils from Abbots Green Primary School, designing and creating Penguin lanterns for the Bury Christmas Fayre lantern parade. Thank you to all who took part, the penguins look absolutely brilliant and students thoroughly enjoyed making them.
Thank you to everyone involved in the Remembrance Service that was held at Great Whelnetham Village Hall. We are incredibly proud of all students who took part, for recognising the centenary (100 years) since the great war as they performed so beautifully during the service. A special thanks goes to Mrs Hugill for her involvement in this very memorable occasion.
We would like to welcome parents of pupils currently in Year 6 to our Open Evening which is being held on Thursday 27th September at 6.30pm. Should you require any further information, please contact the school office on 01284 413400.
