Ground Force Project

Foundation Stage Outdoor Ground Force Day – Saturday 16th June

Dear Parents and Carers,

This term, our Foundation Stage Unit, led by Mrs Paddock, will come together on Saturday 16th June from 9:00am-12:00pm to enhance the Foundation Stage Outdoor area.

To enable us to raise funds to purchase necessary equipment and materials, we plan to have a cake sale on Tuesday 12th June in the Playground after school. If you could send your child with any cake and bun donations that would be fantastic but most importantly we rely on the generosity of volunteers offering their time to make the day a success.

The Ground Force Day will be a great chance to roll your sleeves up and help with some practical tasks focussed on improving an area within the outdoor play area. It will be very sociable, no special DIY skills are required (although if you do have an area of expertise, feel free to declare it so that we can plan the division of tasks accordingly!) and the more the merrier so we hope to see a great turn out of parents and staff!

If you plan to attend, please drop an email to office@hoylandcommonprimary.co.uk to help us plan an efficient use of the workforce! Alternatively if you are unable to attend, please see the list of materials below that you may be able to donate to the cause.

To make the session as effective and efficient as possible, we are asking all volunteers to please bring a garden fork, a spade, some gardening gloves and wellies. With enough helpers, we hope to have the job completed before midday.
Best wishes,
The Ground Force Team

Wanted items;

Cable reels,
Artificial grass,

Any other ideas please email to share!

Nordic Skiing Challenge

By 0

As a school, we would like to congratulate one of our parents for recently completing the Yllas-Levi Ski Marathon, a gruelling 55km Nordic skiing challenge.
Mr Conner is a veteran of the Parachute Regiment who was seriously injured during active service and sadly had to retire. Mr Conner is coming in to school in May to speak to some of our pupils about his experiences and overcoming adversity. His work as a public speaker also raises awareness of the fantastic charities that support veterans.
Mr Conner took part in the ski marathon in Finland with the Armed Forces Para-Snowsport Team (AFPST). This is a charitable organisation set up to support injured and sick veterans through positively challenging themselves and getting purpose back into their lives. He set up a Just Giving page prior to completing the marathon to raise some money for the charity. This is still open and if anyone feels able to make a donation, it would be gratefully received. The link to this is https://www.justgiving.com/fundraising/troy-conner1

Mr Conner appeared in last Friday’s Barnsley Chronicle and also in last week’s Halifax Courier (where he is originally from). If you would like to read the articles they can be accessed through the following links;

Well done Mr Conner!
