Chernobyl Children’s Visit – Summer Term 2016
On Monday 18 July we had the pleasure of welcoming to Hasland Hall 8 children and two adults (their teacher and translator) from Belarus.
Hasland Hall works closely with Chris Broome at the Chernobyl Children’s Lifeline charity. The charity support children affected by the aftermath of the Chernobyl nuclear disaster. The children are visiting the UK for 4 weeks and as well as spending time with students at Hasland Hall they will visit Castleton, cycle around Derwent Reservoirs, swim at Hathersage Lido and visit Matlock Bath. The children also have check-ups at the dentist and doctors.
On arrival at Hasland Hall the children attended a Welcome Assembly where they were greeted by the School Council and Tutor Representatives from Years 7 to 10. The school choir sang, Gloria and Emily (Year 9) read poems in Russian and the visiting children sang in their own language.
A highlight of the morning was when the children were presented with gift bags of presents that had been donated by students from Hasland Hall.
Following the assembly, our visitors were taken on a tour of the school and then enjoyed activities and a cookery lesson with Year 9 students where they made Bakewell Tarts.
Over lunch in our Dining Room the children enjoyed looking at their gift bags and playing with their new toys.
A very enjoyable morning was had by all.
A new Community Choir, meeting every Tuesday from 7.00pm to 8.30pm at the school, is soon to be launched. The aim is to bring together people from the community who would like to share the enjoyment of singing together.
The first gathering will take place on Tuesday 28 November in the Music block. If you are interested in finding out more, please contact the school on 01246 273985 or by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Carol Concert will take place on Monday 18 December at Hasland Methodist Church, commencing at 7.00pm. Tickets are available from the school.
