Willow Foundation Fund Raising - February 2017

 

Following the collection that the school did last week for the Willow Foundation, we received a lovely thank you from the Willow Team…

 

“Dear Mrs Massey,

 

Thank you all so much for your contribution, it is great to see the pupils getting involved with helping an amazing cause. You were one of the very few local primary schools that were willing to get involved so again, thank you so much for helping us out. We got very little support from others which is why your contribution meant so much.

 

We were given the challenge to raise money for Willow Foundation, we had to turn £100 into £1,000. We aimed to do this as well as more, our target was £2,000 but we also wanted to raise awareness which was why I contacted you in the first place.

 

You raised £58.86 for Willow Foundation, this is an amazing achievement and we are so grateful. The challenge finished today and Team Falcon raised an amazing £3,042.19 altogether and you helped us to achieve this. I told the rest of my team, Willow and the dragons about your fundraising and they also wanted me to send a massive thank you on their behalf.”

Hatfield University Student - Thank you
A lovely message received from Hertfordshire University following a student placement.

“Thank you very much for allowing me to spend those two days at Howe Dell Primary School. I was made to feel very welcome by each teacher I met, and was able to observe exceptional lessons. I also want to thank each of the teachers whose classes I sat in. As well as observing their lessons, I have also been shown outstanding teaching methods. Lastly, I would also like to thank the students in each of the classes I visited as I observed impeccable learning and behaviour taking place. This placement at your school has undoubtedly strengthened my drive to become a teacher, as well as supporting my studies”.

Excellent service, beautifully observed by the children.

Excellent assembly

I liked it all!

Love & respect to all those who we lost and those who did return. Always remember.

Very Impressive

Beautiful & poignant, thank you.

A great experience! Everyone was great too.

Beautiful event!

Lovely service as usual, I’ll miss it!

The speeches and 2 minutes was very nice.

A time to contemplate how lucky we are.

A wonderful occasion – so refreshing that children are reminded of the past but with the emphasis on peace and gratitude for those who gave their lives so that we might have it.

Loved returning to Howe Dell to see all the fantastic children and teachers.

I remember when we stood outside for 2 minutes.

A wonderful event.

Enjoyed greatly.

Remember to wear your poppy for people who died.

I liked returning to Howe Dell and watching the assembly.

Very good effort.

Lovely service of remembrance.

Proud to be part of your service.

Thank you for such a lovely service.

A lovely occasion to remember the fallen, always in our hearts.

Returning to Howe Dell was amazing, has it changed? The assembly today was very good!!

I love it that things changed.

Delighted to be a part of this beautiful occasion.

I liked the marching.

Well done Howe Dell! £156 raised by dressing in the colours of the Indian Flag, to support the education of a child in rural India for the tenth year in a row, which will be again matched by our Rotary Club who will sponsor a second child. This idea came from our Children's Council, who advertised the event, spoke to classes and took photos of the day.

How does our School develop community links?

Community projects are a regular feature of Howe Dell, enhanced over the years by strong links and shared leadership between the School and Children Centre. Here are just some of the events we have been involved in, working with families, neighbours and local business. We have also been partners In Learning internationally through Microsoft and further links overseas through British Council or Hertfordshire led visits abroad, for staff and visitors from America and China to learn from our site and provision. Recently, our children have used technology to access live contact with business links abroad for debate and for a virtual tour of an Italian bean factory!

Remembrance: A time for coming together. Children dressed in uniforms from cadets and scouting movements, Onlow School Air Cadets took the salute, the elderly from Sanctuary House, Lord Salisibury and representatives from uniformed public services, the local Council, parents and friends of Howe Dell all attended.
