London Trip – June 2017

Although some school trips leaving yesterday were cancelled as the London incident was a designated live issue with ongoing investigations, our trip does not come into that category. As such, the strong feeling from staff is that the trip should go ahead as planned. There is therefore no change to the schedule and we look forward to another successful excursion for our students. Mrs Brown as trip leader will handle any further contacts.

Polli-nation

We need your help!

HGS is involved in an exciting project called Polli-nation which is tasked with adapting our school space to encourage wildlife.

We are looking for helpers during the construction phase over the next two terms. We plan to construct bug hotels and green walls filling them with plants. If you feel like you can help us please contact Mrs Michelle Colbourne at the school.
