Cultural Capital Week Music Festival
What a beautifully sunny day it was for our first ever Music Festival. The whole school came together at last to watch performance after brilliant performance. Well done to all of the children who took part, congratulations to our Howe Dell's Got Talent winner Rene and thank you to Gemma our visiting Opera Singer.
Thank you to all staff and children who against the COVID-19 restrictions, have managed to create a short presentation including every child who can be filmed and is celebrating Christmas with us. Whilst children and class based staff will watch the performances in class bubbles at 9.30am on Thursday 10th December, this is available for all non class based staff to watch socially distanced in the Hall.
Furthermore, as our virtual Christmas gift to a wider audience, this is safely able to be accessed from the following link by parents, governors and those who would normally have come to site to enjoy our 7 usual productions at this time of year.
I hope this is enjoyed in the sentiment it is made: a positive end to 2020 for all. Thanks to all staff and children for their creativity and resilience with this, including Mr Mason who has compiled the final version.
To mark 8 years at the Runway and celebrate the strong bonds with North Hatfield, Howe Dell Children Centre opened it's doors to the community it has served to positively for 8 years. Hundreds including local Councillors, babies, toddlers, parents, grandparents and carers danced alongside Bollywood dancers, ate a banquet of international food and celebrated 8 successful years before handing over the leadership to Birchwood Hub Nursery as Lead Agency for Howe Dell, Birchwood and De Havilland.
A huge thank you to Mel Chandairia for a stunning cake and so much preparation behind the scenes by staff and volunteers.
