Extra Curricular Achievements

At Holy Family we like to celebrate the achievements that our children may have outside of school too. Children are often on our More Able and Gifted and Talented Register due to achievements they have from outside of school. Below we have added some pictures sent to us from our parents of the amazing achievements they have had outside of school!

Well done to all of the children below for their many achievements!

Diwali Mela

The children of Key Stage 2 who have been identified as More Able in Art and Design were invited to make Diwali lanterns with a special visitor in October. They were then invited, along with Year 3, to take part in a parade in Manchester celebrating Diwali. The parade was a great success and the children really enjoyed making their lanterns and then taking part in the parade. Thank you so much to all of the parents for all of your support. 

More Able, Gifted and Talented After School Club

After Easter we will be introducing a More Able after school club for children who want to learn how to play challenging board games. This club is not for the feint hearted. It will be available for any children who deem themselves hard working enough and good at board games. The first game we will learn to play will be 'Articulate'. Parents will be invited to come in and play the game in the last week of that term with their children.
