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.
Autumn 2018 update
The Christmas Crafts Fair was a great success. It was well supported and I must say we have some very imaginative and enterprising young people in school. Well done to all those who took part in the crafty tray sale. Special commendation to Izzy who made the most profit with her wonderful clay creations and to the children and William’s Nanny who produced some amazing willow creations in the Garden Crafts club, great team work.
Particular thanks must go to Rachel Sinfield and the CO OP for donating all the wonderful mince pies to go with the very festive mulled wine. Also, many thanks must go to all the staff and volunteers who gave up their own time to make this such a special event, as well as parents, friends and family who joined in the fun. We have raised £360.17 towards supporting the school’s endeavours to make your child’s education outstanding, through fun, memorable and imaginative means.
The Sleepy Shepherd Nativity organised by the Class 1 team of staff and volunteers has been a resounding triumph, ably supported by the Friend’s on the raffle and refreshments. As I write this, we are looking forward to the visit from Father Christmas next week, hopefully with something special for all the children. Key Stage 2 are also gearing up for an inspiring performance of Scrooge in church. Friend’s will be holding a raffle, with the proceeds going to the church funds. We look forward to seeing everyone there.
I hope everyone has a great seasonal break and comes back ready and raring to go in the Spring term with the February Ball on your calendar.
Many thanks for all your continuing support, we wouldn’t be able to achieve what we do without you, the staff, parents, family and friends of the school.
Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to you all!
Chair of the Friend’s of Hellifield School
