Thank you friends at Queenswood School who donated 50 hampers for worthy families, as part of their students' Duke of Edinburgh project.

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”.


Thank you so much for so many positive comments arising from consultation appointments with staff this week. Notable recognition goes to Mel Chandaria and her team of staff and parent helpers for serving home made curry with samosas, to raise additional funds for our sponsored child in India.

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.
