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.
Parents’ Evening provides parents with a valuable opportunity to speak to teachers about their son/daughter’s progress. We would, therefore, ask that all parents attend. Students will be booking appointment times for their parents between 4.15pm and 7pm. If for particular reasons you are unable to attend, please contact the school to arrange an alternative time.
The Community Craft Club meets every Thursday from 6.00pm in the School dining room. The aim is to bring together people from the community who would like to share the enjoyment of crafting. They are currently undertaking a variety of craft projects which will lead to a sale for charity.

A Community Choir meets every Tuesday from 7.00pm to 8.30pm in the Music block at the school. The aim is to bring together people from the community who would like to share the enjoyment of singing together.
