Grand Forest School Opening!
The Forest School at Hyndburn Park has finally been completed. An area once referred to as ‘The Jungle’ has now been transformed into an outdoor classroom! On Monday 10th September 2018, we held the Launch Event to officially mark the area ‘open’. Julie Hesmondhalgh, governors, the Mayoress and friends of the school joined the children to celebrate the long awaited opening. The following article in the Accrington Observer described the event and Forest School in some more detail: https://www.accringtonobserver.co.uk/news/corrie-star-julie-hesmondhalgh-returns-15144427
Race for Life!
"From Monday 12th March to Friday 16th March it was our Spring fund and awareness week at Hyndburn Park! Our chosen charity this term was Cancer Research UK. The School Council organised bake sales throughout the week from Nursery all the way up to Year 6.
We also held a sponsored 2K run on Friday 16th March. The weather even cleared up for us!
Throughout the week - we raised a STAGGERING £3262 . 98 for Cancer Research UK! (The highest amount we have ever raised!!).
A huge WELL DONE to our Key Stage trophy winners for raising the most sponsored funds during our Race for Life event.
Congratulations to Aqsa Mehmood in Class 2 (EYFS) for raising £147, Eissa Hussain in Class 7 (KS1) for raising £56.72, Subhan Akram in Class 11 (LKS2) for raising £132 and finally, Iqra Hussain in Class 19 (UKS2) for her £73.45!
A special thank you to all our parents, teachers, sponsors and most importantly our children, who helped to make our Race for Life event a success and for supporting such an amazing cause."
