Whilst staff were learning about Kagan techniques, willing volunteers, organised by Winton Harrison, began the hard work for our allotment project. Winton has done so much “ground work” and the project lifting off is down to his resilience and endeavour. We hope that during the Easter holidays, the allotment will really begin to take shape, ready for a Summer term opening.
Sadly, today we are saying goodbye to Mrs Hague. Mrs Hague has worked at Holmfirth J I & N School for 29 years (we know – she doesn’t look old enough!) and during her time at school she has worked with every class from Nursery through to Year 6.
I am sure you will join us in wishing Mrs Hague all the best for the next exciting chapter in her life and thanking her for her long service, care and dedication to our school and all our children, past and present.
Thank you Mrs Hague!
We, along with all other schools in the UK, have been asked to share the following information with parents. It is highly unlikely to be relevant to anyone associated with Holmfirth J I & N School but here is the advice
The overall risk of Coronavirus to the UK remains moderate. However we understand that people may be concerned where there are children, students or staff returning from or visiting China.
Advice for parents/guardians
You should not be unduly worried about the possibility of your children catching the Coronavirus.
There is no reason why your children should not continue to attend their early years, school or further education setting as normal.
We recognise that some families or children may be planning to travel to China during the forthcoming half term period. If so, please refer to the FCO’s latest travel advice via the link above.
