Message from the Headteacher
Our overarching aim is Achievement for All: for all our students to be safe, happy and successful, developing as individuals into caring, responsible citizens equipped for life in the 21st century. At Haslingden, success is defined in its widest sense: in students achieving appropriate qualifications, in equipping them with the skills to be lifelong learners and in developing each individual into a confident, well rounded adult.View More
World Book Day
Thursday 1st March marks the annual World Book Day event and we have planned some fantastic activities that we would love your child to get involved with!
Firstly, ‘The Great British Book Off’ is a fun literary twist on the famous TV show. Staff and students are invited to create a delicious cake inspired by their favourite book. This could be a current read, a childhood favourite or simply a cake inspired by their love of reading. Entries are to be taken to the school library before 9am on the day and prizes will be awarded to the winners. At break time, slices of the yummy treats will be sold to raise money to provide more books for our students.
Our next activity asks staff and students to bring along their current read to celebrate the day. For fifteen minutes at the start of every lesson, the whole school will DEAR (drop everything and read). This enables both staff and students to tuck into their favourite book throughout the day so don’t forget to bring it along!
Finally, students are invited to donate a book to the school library and in return will be offered a ‘brick’ in the English block in their honour. The ‘brick’ template can be displayed anywhere the student chooses in the block and will include their name and the title of their book donation. Their contribution will be remembered for years to come and it is a great way of recommending reads to other students. Students just need to include their name and form inside the book and hand it in to the school library during the day.
It would be wonderful to see as many students as possible partaking in some, if not all, of these activities to celebrate World Book Day. Please encourage your child to get involved and enjoy the day.
