Welcome to our colleagues from South Africa

This week we welcome Eloise Billingham from Wynberg Junior School for Girls, our link school in Capetown, and her colleagues from other Capetown schools.  We will also be working with our UK partner schools in the project: Neston and Whitby High Schools and Weston Primary.  Our South African visitors are in the schools for a week.  We welcome them with an assembly today and are hosting a celebration assembly here at Hillside at 1.30pm on Thursday afternoon this week.  Parents are most welcome to join us for this.

As you are aware, we are involved in our joint ‘Zero Plastic’ programme and pupils will be involved in activities linked to this theme during the week.  Thanks again for all your support with this and with making ‘Eco-bricks’.


These ice lollies will be on sale from this week, for KS1 on Tuesdays and KS2 on Thursdays. Cost is 25p each, please pay in cash.

Cinema Night!

A reminder this Thursday, 13th June, is our ‘Cinema Night’ when the children can stay and play and watch a film for £5. Booking closes today.  The two film choices are Lego Movie 2 or A Dog’s Way Home, children can choose either film to watch.  We hope that the children enjoy the day.  Funds raised will go towards the inflatable assault course booked for the whole school on 28th June. 

Midday assistant vacancy

We are looking to appoint a new midday assistant to supervise children at lunchtime. The hours are 6.25 per week, Monday to Friday, 11.50am until 1.05pm. Please contact Mrs MacCready in the school office asap if anyone you know may be interested. 

Open Day-Frodsham Community Fire Station

This free event is on Sunday 30th June 10.00-15.00.  Visitors can meet their local fire-fighters and police, get their face painted, learn about fire and road safety, watch displays, look on our fire engine and have a play on the soft play area.
