Hellifield School has a "Friends of Hellifield" group. All parents are encouraged to join the committee when their children start school. They organise events to raise money in order to purchase special things for the children so that they experience a full and diverse curriculum.
Events have included fashion shows, raffles, coffee mornings, a sponsered walk, Autumn/Christmas Fair and Easter/Christmas Bingo evenings.
Money raised from these events have bought new books, whole school pantomime trips, outdoor play equipment, a story teller's chair, picnic benches and transport for school trips.
Hellifield Friends News and Dates
Autumn is definitely doing its worse but spirits are high in school. The busiest time of year of year is upon us. We appreciate your time, support and patience over the next weeks leading up to Christmas. The Cheese and wine evening was a great success many thanks to Jane Capstick and Booths for putting on a great evening.
Our next event is Bags 2 School. Bags have been sent out and distributed around the village. Please have a good sort out and fill as many bags as you can. (more bags available in school). However, please keep hold of your bags until nearer the date due to limited storage in school.
This years Christmas Fair/Tray Sale will be on Thursday 14th December. Years 2/4 and 6 are encouraged to come up with Christmas crafty ideas that can be sold on a tray. Limited to a budget of £5 on materials, they get to keep a percentage of their profits. Friends provide a calm oasis with refreshments and music to get you in the mood.
We will be doing a general plea for items for hampers to be raffled at the Nativity performances on the 12th and 13th Dec. If anyone has any connections with businesses that could support this please ask and let us know. Also, we would like to serve refreshments so any volunteers to make brews on Tuesday afternoon or Wednesday evening would be much appreciated.
