Nordic Skiing Challenge /

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.

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;

A huge Thank you for your support! /

Thank you for the support and positive comments in relation to HCPS staff and parking restrictions outside of school. It is very much appreciated, however there are still a minority of parents still jeopardising the safety of pupils by parking illegally. Please lets work together to combat this.

Today we have been trying food from Thailand and Italy as part of International Day. The food was delicious. Before we ate, we put a sticker on a world map to show where our favourite foods come from.
