An Inspector calls (in this case two)|
Mr John Thorpe and Mrs Pam Mackro visited St Hubert's School on Wednesday 19th October to conduct a Section 48 RE Inspection. They wish to thank the children, staff, governors and parents for making them so welcome. The draft report will be sent into school next week with the final version published shortly afterwards. At the moment we are not able to give details of the Inspection findings except to say that we feel comfortable with the initial feedback. All families will receive a copy of the final report when it is published. It will also be placed on the website.
Happy 97th Birthday Miss Jessie Hall MBE.|
Those that know Jessie Hall will understand that she is an icon of Great Harwood and our Catholic Community. She was a pupil at St Wulstan’s school in the early 1920s
Jessie was on the board of governors at the newly opened St Hubert’s School in 1967, having previously served as a governor at the old school.
“HALLFIELD ROAD” leading to the school was actually named after Jessie. She retired from the Governing Body in 2003 after serving for 40 years.
Jessie has held some prestigious offices during her lifetime including Mayor of Hyndburn, Deputy Head of Mount Carmel and President of the local Girl Guides and Brownies.
She was a fund-raiser extraordinaire, raising thousands of pounds for the scanner appeal and the hospice.
Jessie added status to community and gave children a wonderful example of how to help others less fortunate.
The Governors and the children recognised Jessie’s birthday this week when two Year 6 pupils presented her with the pupils’ handmade crafted cards and a hamper from the Governors.
St Hubert's PTFA - Disco Thursday 20th October - a great success!|
A great big thank you to all who came along to make this creepy event so much fun. Apart from generating a lot of fun and noise, the evening realised a profit of £420:58 for the PTFA funds. This will be put towards replacing the play apparatus which was located where Milly's Bench now stands. We want to make that area a fun place to be for the children and we are now that much nearer to realising that ambition. Thank you again for all the support.

Top Tips for Staying Safe Online|
It is important to ensure that your child is kept safe when using the internet. It is a great idea to add 'restrictions' in order to limit content. This can be very easily done. Some internet service providers provide this as part of their package. An alternative is to set them up yourself. Below you will find sets of instructions to explain how to do this on both Microsoft and Apple products.
Another way in which you can protect your child from the content they are viewing is by encouraging them to use child friendly search engines. Please find a list of ones that we advise to use below. By using these sites, the search engines filter results to child friendly websites. Not only limiting pictures and content but ranking results which use child friendly language. These will be great for when they are completing any research tasks!
