Towards the end of last term Mr Bennett and Mrs Cope went to a presentation at the County Buildings to receive a certificate to recognise the excellent attendance record that the school has had over the last 12 months. Our Educational Welfare Officer had nominated Holly Grove. The certificate was presented by Robert Pointon and present were Peter Traves, the Director of Children and Lifelong Learning and Councillor Robert Simpson who is the Deputy Leader of the Council of children and young people.
This was a very proud moment for the school as it is an achievement which the whole school community has played a part in, so thanks to all of you who ensure that your children attend regularly.
A Message from Mrs. O'Hare
I would like to take the opportunity to wish everyone a very Happy New Year! I feel very pleased to be writing to you as the new head teacher of Holly Grove Primary School. The school has enjoyed considerable success over a number of years and I look forward to building on this.
I have had a lovely welcome from the children and I have been impressed by what I have seen of them. The staff too have made me most welcome and I am really looking forward to working with such a dedicated team. I am sure that there may be occasions when you have ideas or concerns that you wish to discuss, if you do need to see me please do not hesitate to contact me for an appointment. I look forward to working with you all and may I once more wish you a very Happy 2008!
