Please note the school council will be fundraising for BBC Children in Need on Friday 16th November.
We are asking all the children to come to school in non-uniform, wearing something yellow and/or spotty and to make a donation of £1. We would also welcome any donations of cakes, for a cake sale we will be holding on the day and during the week we will be collecting loose change (silver/copper) to decorate Pudsey Bear. All proceeds will go to Children in Need.
Many thanks for your support,
The School Council.
Thank you to all the pupils, staff and parents for helping us to raise an enormous £460, £322 for BBC children in need and £138 for Kids inspire. We really enjoyed coming in our own clothes to school and putting money on the Pudsey bear. We hope you all enjoyed it too. Next time we would like to see if we can raise even more money.
From HFS school council.

"In year 6 I am a School Council member. In the School Council meetings I talk about and discuss a variety of things. The most important thing about the job is that you need to be able to make decisions, and ask questions if you're not sure, or if you have an idea. I like the job because it inspires me to talk about things that we need or don't need. I also like doing this job because I like listening to others."
" In year 6 I am a School Council member. We talk about what we could do for Red Nose Day or Children in Need. It is fun because you get to make suggestions in what we can do for the school. It is especially fun because I have never done anything like this before. If you want to be a School Council member go for it, because it is really fun."
" In year 6 I am Chair of the School Council. This is good because I can listen to what everyone has to say. I enjoy this job. My job is to be in control of the School Council meeting. The school Council organises events such as Red Nose Day."
" I am the Secretary of the School Council. Doing this job allows me to set up fun days and do what's best for everyone. I am able to share ideas to change our school for the better. I can share ideas to see if we can use them. My job is important because I can help the school raise money for charities, or for ourselves, in fun and enjoyable ways. I can plan activities for special times like Comic Relief or Book Week. I enjoy my job because I can help Holy Family in a variety of ways for the greater good."
" I am the Treasurer of the School Council. My role is very important because I can be in charge of money and I can help give ideas for fundraising, such as Children in Need and Comic Relief. The best part is that we get to help out in cake sales and fairs. The reason why I wanted to do it is because ever since year 2 I thought that it would be a cool to be in charge and come up with ideas, and make it real. We sometimes have drinks and biscuits before a meeting too."
