Back to school

The summer holidays seem a long time ago and the weather is certainly becoming more autumnal. Our schools have been delighted to welcome the children back into school and we are hopeful that we will be able to arrange ALPT events this year which had to be cancelled due to the pandemic. We are all glad to be back to something a bit more “normal”.

Fundraising at Guiseley School and Guiseley Community Foundation

Givto is a platform where members can donate to a different charity each month with one simple direct debit. Each month, those who have signed up to donate can choose one of three charities to donate to that month. In July, members can choose to support Guiseley Community Foundation. Any donation through Givto will help support the Foundation to continue their work in local communities. Givto is a brand-new charity itself, so they have started with a pilot scheme in Yorkshire, with the hope of expanding to help charities elsewhere in the country.

Guiseley School staff member, George Deane, a Learning Support Assistant in the Student Support Centre is about to begin a fundraising campaign to support the SSC. George is a type 2 diabetic and must exercise regularly to maintain his glucose levels. He is hoping to use his daily sponsored walks to raise awareness around diabetes as well as raise funds for the SSC. To find out more details or to make a donation visit Guiseley School’s website and search for “George”.

Eco School Project

Guiseley Community Foundation Coach Marcus has started the Eco Schools project in two of our schools- Queensway and Guiseley Primary. The first session has seen Marcus meet up with each school’s newly-elected Eco Committees to discuss the project. Both schools are beginning to complete an environmental review, which will help them create an action plan to make their school more environmentally friendly. Once this action plan has been written up and displayed on each school’s Eco-board, the schools will have reached the first milestone en route to Eco School status, the Bronze flag award.

Healthy Holidays and Football Camps

During the Easter Holidays, Guiseley Community Foundation held Healthy Holiday camps at Yeadon Westfield Junior School. They were a major success, with every day being fully booked. The attending children enjoyed a wide range of activities, including activities led by Foundation staff, as well as activities from outside organisations. One of the most popular proved to be a visit from West Yorkshire PCSOs Sophie, Rob and Olivia. The PCSOs provided a fun-filled morning, including allowing attending children to dress as police officers, to look inside their police van, as well as demonstrating an arrest! Children also really enjoyed activities provided by Go Wild Outdoors, who showed children how to put up tents and hammocks, as well as teaching them about archery. Season Well also provided children with the opportunity to grow microgreens.

As well as the successful Healthy Holiday camps, the Foundation also held equally as successful Football camps. Similar to the Healthy Holidays Camp, each day was fully booked with 30 children. Both boys and girls attended, of all ages from 6-13, and of varying footballing abilities. It was great to see a number of children who had not attended Football camps previously enjoying the different activities. Further Holiday Football camps will be held during May half-term.

Lacrosse at Guiseley School

Having received a donation from Centurion Lacrosse Club to the fund the equipment required, Guiseley School have now introduced lacrosse into the PE curriculum. Students have really enjoyed learning a new sport and have adapted well to its demands, making fantastic progress and picking up the core skills of passing, catching, shooting and handling ground balls very quickly. It is clear to see how important PE is to students’ holistic development.
