This Saturday (28th September) will be a maintenance day at Hope House School, with willing volunteers working in two shifts (from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. and then from 1 p.m. until 5 p.m.) to clear the rubble and debris in the outdoor area between the school and the Post Office. We are determined to make a good start on clearing the area so that work can begin in earnest on transforming this area into a place where pupils can both play and learn. Many thanks to all who have already volunteered to help out. If you are able to come along for even an hour or so, that would be a great help - just let us know in the school office and we'll do our best to get cracking on this new project!
The next FHHS Planning meeting will be on Monday 7th October at 7.30 p.m. We'll be looking at what to do next with the outdoor play area and planning the Christmas Fayre.
Events to put in your diaries now include:
Monday 21st October Bake 'n' Take
The first Bake 'n' Take of the new academic year will be on Monday 21st October at 3 p.m. Please bring in homemade baking to sell at this event and we are sure it'll be a great event!
Thursday 14th November Bag2School Recycling Day
Bring in all your unwanted clothes, bedding, curtains, bags, belts and shoes and we will exchange these for money! Bags will be given out nearer the time, but again, this is a great and easy way of raising funds for the outdoor area project.
Friday 29th November Christmas Fayre
Whilst it seems almost sacrilegious to mention Christmas in September, I have to point out that we're holding a Christmas Fayre on Friday 29th November from 3 p.m. until 5 p.m. We'll be running our usual hamper competitions, so if you have any items of food, drink or toiletries to offer for these, please send them in to school, remembering to give us an idea of their value. We are also holding a 'Bottle Bank', so any bottles (containing wine, spirits, non-alcoholic drinks, oils, vinegars etc.) will also be gratefully received.
At the Christmas Fayre, there will be a number of stalls selling items and lots of games and competitions. If you are able to help in any way at the Christmas Fayre, please let me know.
