After seven years as a governor and almost three of those as Chair, Andy Bell has stood down as Chair of Governors of Hungerford Primary School. Vice-Chair, Alan Mollison, is now taking up the role of Chair. We have also been pleased to welcome two new governors, Mrs Angela Robertson & Mr Robert Salame to the Governing Board.
We are sad to be saying goodbye to Headteacher Gerry Heaton at the end of this term but we are looking forward to welcoming David Mayer as our new Headteacher in September. David is an experienced Headteacher who knows the school well as his own daughters were pupils a few years ago.
We are very proud of two pupils who are raising money for worthy causes. Nine year old Amelia Lo trekked 40 miles across the Yorkshire Moors to raise funds for the National Autistic Society and for the Richard Iain Jauncey Sunflower Tribute Fund in aid of Epilepsy Action. Amelia was accompanied by family and friends but was the youngest walker in the party. The total amount of money she has raised so far is almost £500. Visit www.justgiving.com and enter ‘Amelia’s Lyke Wake Adventure’ if you would like to support her.
William Howells, also aged nine, is preparing to undertake a 220 mile bicycle ride later this month to also raise money for the the Richard Iain Jauncey Sunflower Tribute Fund in aid of Epilepsy Action. William will be riding with his father, Ben Howells, from Tenby in Wales along the coast down to Bristol, Bath and back home to Hungerford totalling a distance of 220 miles. If you would like to sponsor William, go to www.justgiving.com and enter ‘William Howells’ to access his charity page.
We are also looking forward to our great school fete coming up on Saturday 1 July. We look foward to seeing you there!
