Sponsored Walk to support Friends of Hillcrest


In the week beginning Monday 22nd April all year groups will be doing a sponsored walk in support of Friends of Hillcrest Primary School. The sponsored walk will take place in Arnos Vale Cemetery during school hours and is a great opportunity for the kids to exercise and have fun whilst raising funds, all of which go towards enriching their education and school experience.


Each year group has set its own challenge:


Yr 1 will do laps from the top to the bottom of the cemetery FOUR times.


Anyone who manages to raise £5 or over will receive a small prize!

Thank for your support for what we hope will be a very enjoyable and energetic event.


For ease of collection, we would be very grateful if any sponsorship raised could be made directly to the Friends of Hillcrest crowd funder here:




  • THE READ-A-NATOR. When your child has read at home, simply hit the button and click your child's class to add a point to their class tally. The class with the most points at the end of the term will win a treat.


  • Mailbag - Check your Friday Mailbag, emailed to you at the end of the day every Friday, for important whole-school news and updates.
