Helme is a small primary school nestled in a glorious position overlooking the foothills of the Pennines.
The school runs a Breakfast Club to allow children to start school early and benefit from a hearty breakfast.
Jellies, an independent out of school club, runs after school in the Church in Linthwaite. Jellies staff pick up children both directly after school and are aiming to pick up at the end of after school activities in the near future. For more information about Jellies visit their website here.
The children at Helme School welcolmed Watasa Geoffrey, Headteacher, and Mwasa Joshua, Teacher and Librarian, from their partner school, Buyaka Primary School, Mbale Uganda on Friday 9 October 2014. Thanks are due to the British Council and CrossRoads, Meltham for funding the visit. The visitors and the children at Helme School thoroughly enjoyed the visit:
The visit has helped support the ongoing project which has contributed to Helme School receiving the International Schools Award. Mrs Dempster, Headteacher, said:
‘The children at Helme School have not only developed a better understanding of life in Buyaka but also appreciated what the children at Buyaka can give to them.’
