Halcyon Winter Dance

Students in the advisory of "Hubbub", have organised a winter dance for our school and community friends. Please sign-up here! Their aim is to raise money for Mary's Meals. £12.20 can feed two children for a year and their goal is to feed 60 young people. Funds will come from the dance entry fees and your contributions to this site.

This is a festive season for children of many faiths. Food is such a big part of traditional celebrations! It is hard for us to realise that many children may be going without food during this happy holiday season. You can make a difference to these young people by making a donation...Plus the government will match you £ for £ up until December 28th for every £ raised. So please be generous and watch our fund raising efforts grow.

International Night, Halcyon International Family Showcase!

This Thursday! 1730 - 2000.

Bring your favourite foods, games and costumes from your home country. A great night for your whole family!

Holiday Events!

Dear Students,

On Wednesday 09 December, I, Daphni in Grade 11, will be hosting a few events in light of the holiday season which will involve:

  • Festive jumper day

  • Secret Santa three days Monday to Wednesday (you can leave your gifts in the area outside the Teacher’s area)

  • Holiday card-making session

If you would like to take part in the festive jumper day, please come to school on Wednesday 09 December in a festive jumper and donate £1. All the money will be donated to Cancer Research UK, a charity which helps fund cancer research. If you would like to take part in Secret Santa, please sign- up here. Please sign up today! (teachers too!)

If you would like to participate in the holiday card-making session, come to S02 during lunch time on Wednesday 09 December. All the cards made will be sent to an elderly home, the one visited by GIN!
