The “Friends of Hollesley School” run several events throughout the year; some of them to raise money for the school and some of them are just for fun. These are constantly evolving but include the annual Christmas Fair, a Halloween “Spooktacular” at the village hall, an Easter Egg Hunt, a non-uniform day, cake stalls and a regular cinema evening for the children. We also hold regular coffee afternoons (with delicious home-baked cakes!) which give parents a chance to get together at school.

Improvements to School Grounds

 

 

 

 

Over the past year the Friends have focussed on maintaining and improving the school grounds. Through a series of weekend working parties work was carried out to improve the wildlife garden and pond (including an upgraded pond dipping platform), to replace and maintain the existing “rainbow shelter” and “bee shelter” and to build the new wet weather shelter and bark area.

 

Thank you to all the parents who made this possible through their generous donations of money, time and expertise!

 

New Playground Trail

The children are now enjoying the exciting new play trail that the Friends have purchased for the school.  Thanks to everyone who has been involved in removing the old equipment (which had become unsafe) and for supporting the Friends’ fundraising efforts over the past couple of years. Thanks as well for the school Governors’ financial contribution which enabled the climbing wall to be included along with the trail.

We hope it will give the children lots of fun and exercise over the coming years!

 

School Orchard

On Friday 29th March 2014 the “Friends”, along with lots of willing helpers from years 4,5 and 6, began work on the new school orchard.

We planted around 15 trees – which are a mixture of apple, pear, plum, cherry and even apricot!

It was a beautifully sunny spring day and lots of fun was had by all. The children did a really great job of digging holes, shovelling manure and giving the trees a good soaking.
