On Friday 11th December Dean Field Community Primary School and Beech Hill Primary School (both part of The Family of Learning Trust) participated in the Reindeer Run and Christmas Jumper day for Overgate Hospice. This was a sponsored run where the children collected sponsorships from their friends and family.
Throughout the day all year groups took part, running in their own ‘bubbles’ whilst wearing antlers and red noses. Most classes chose to run or walk around the playground for a distance appropriate for their age. The Family of Learning Trust’s very own ‘Poet in Residence’, Winston ran 13km around Beech Hill’s pitch! We even had pupils who were self-isolating in other countries take part. The support and generosity from our children, parents and loved ones has been amazing; Beech Hill Primary raised £2015 and Dean Field Community Primary raised £3519.35! Equalling in a massive total of…£5534.35! Even in these tough times community members of Halifax have managed to pull together to support those in need and have fun at the same time too! A great way to start our Christmas holidays.
