On the afternoon of Friday 13 September all pupils and staff from Holmfirth High School will be taking part in their first ever whole school sponsored walk. Pupils and staff will start to depart, in year groups, from school at 1pm. The route of the walk is as shown in the photo.
Please be aware if you are in the vicinity that they will be over 1300 students and staff walking the route in non-uniform. The route is well supervised with marshals wearing high visibility jackets.
The school is currently working with the FA, Football Foundation and a number of local football clubs in preparation to submit a bit to the football foundation in January for funding towards a new 3G pitch on the school site. As part of the schools’ commitment we need to demonstrate that we have made effort towards fundraising for the project so we have set ourselves a target of £50,000 over the academic year. The sponsored walk is just one of the activities that we have planned over the year.
The new pitch will serve the whole community supporting and developing the football experience and growth in the Holme Valley.
If any interested parties would like to discuss the project further please contact the school at firstname.lastname@example.org . Any additional support would be greatly appreciated.
