Thank you to everyone who contributed to our Christmas House Box Challenge. All proceeds have been safely delivered by Bertie the Bear to St John’s Church, Wawne in time for Christmas. Congratulations go to Team Sudtone who won the challenge with 8 boxes.
On Wednesday 24th October we held our first Careers Fair – we had over 30 businesses, educational and training providers in attendance – over 1,000 of our pupils had the chance to attend the event and speak to the organisations/providers and learn about the opportunities available to them post 16.
We would like to thank the involved for making the event a huge success and look forward to working with you in the future.
During February half-term Winifred Holtby was once again packed full of families enjoying the incredible Back To Ours Festival as part of Hull’s City of Culture legacy programme. Funded by Arts Council England’s Strategic Touring Fund, NHS Hull Clinical Commissioning Group and Spirit of 2012, families were entertained with music, laughter and storytelling.
First off they were treated to The magical, animated world of Claymation with two of Nick Park's best-loved films, Chicken Run and Wallace & Gromit: The Curse of the Were-Rabbit. Workshops included animation making their own Claymation character, helping chickens fly, attending flight school, becoming members of the Inventor’s Club and helping the scientists make fun contraptions.
The Amazing Bubble Man amazed everyone with his unique show. From square bubbles, bubbles in bubbles, fog-filled bubbles, caterpillar bubbles and even people inside bubbles, The Amazing Bubble had the audience laughing and gasps of amazement from everyone. A colourful, loud and funny show ended our half term fun at Winifred Holtby.
We look forward to lots more events during the Back To Ours Festival 2018 programme.
On Tuesday 19th December Winifred Holtby pupils and staff had their Christmas lunch and as is customary they invited some of the local community to join them – lunch was followed by an afternoon showing of our Christmas concert, with songs from both Tweendykes and Winifred Holtby pupils.
Our guests said they had thoroughly enjoyed themselves and would be back again next year.
A big thank you to everyone who supported us at the Christmas Fayre on Saturday 25th November.
We had lots of fantastic stalls and all the pupils and community were feeling very festive (a little early I know).
A big thank you to the 'Storm Trooper' (Peter Wegg) for giving up his time to raise money for a good cause - he can be contacted for events on - email@example.com and to The Hull East Community Policing Team for popping in to see us.
