Get Ready for the Alderwasley Hall School Virtual Open Day

Preparations for our Live Streamed Virtual Open Day are well under way now. Remember that this event will take place from 10:30am on Saturday 18th July.

You can tune in and watch this event live or simply catch-up at a time later in the weekend to suit you. The link for the event is here.  

More importantly – Open Day is the largest fund raiser our school has for our charity (the School Trust) and I am very keen that we don’t miss out on the opportunity to support the charity. We’ve set up a GoFundMe site to raise money for our Lower Site Play Area.

Thank you all in advance of your support.
