Twenty one schools, including North Huddersfield Learning Community schools attended a wonderful inter-generational event at the Rex Cinema Elland on the 18th February. Nearly 300 people, aged between 5 and 86 years old were treated to a trip through film history. Beginning with a silent movie (Keystone Cops) which was magically accompanied by Reinwood Infant Schools very own organist Ben Hinchliffe, the audience were whisked back several decades to experience the unique atmosphere of early film. Followed by a wonderful short movie starring Laurel and Hardy, laughter filled the 101 year old cinema. A very special treat with a short excerpt taken from the first ever colour movie, Snow White and the Seven Dwarves came next, and the show culminated with a trip to Monsters University.
Old and Young enjoyed the whole experience which was organised and coordinated by Jane Lees and Lisa Jagger, Enrichment Activity Facilitators for the schools involved. Fingers crossed, this may become an annual event!
North Huddersfield Learning Community will be holding a 'Winter Warmer' event on Saturday 30th November, 11am until 2pm at North Huddersfield Trust School. Open to the whole community, there will be lots of fun activities, performances by local pupils, stalls and refreshments. Further information will appear here very soon!

Pennine School Sport Partnership
Wednesday 30th January saw the annual North Huddersfield Learning Community KS1 basketball tournament take place at North Huddersfield Trust School. The event was well attended from our Primary Schools and was once again supported by the High Schools PE department and Mr Mcmanus. The event allowed our year 2 pupils to learn the basics of basketball, whilst socialising with pupils from other schools. The afternoon culminated in a mini tournament which was eventually won by Birkby Infants. Well done to all those taking part and to the staff who organised their trip to the high school.
ASDA Supports the NHLC - Devember 2012
North Huddersfield Learning Community have joined forces with ASDA to raise funds for a minibus. A range of fundraising activities will take place over the course of this academic year; some activities will happen within individual schools and others will take place at the Brackenhall ASDA store. Transport costs can be a barrier to many schools accessing activities, and having a minibus that all the schools can use will be a huge boost. Trips to local museums and places of interest help to bring learning to life. Having access to a minibus will enable schools to enrich and broaden the education of our children.
The project is the brainchild of Asda community ambassadors Judith Alderman and Anne Hodkin who are now set to drive the project forward, working closely with Lisa Jagger, Enrichment Activity Facilitator for the NHLC. ASDA will be encouraging other local businesses to get involved by donating to the appeal, supporting fundraising activities and there also may be opportunities for sponsorship in the future.

North Huddersfield Learning Community Official Launch
Wednesday 3rd October saw the official launch of the North Huddersfield Learning Community.
Schools in the North Huddersfield area have joined forces toensure all pupils receive every opportunity and experience of learning. The seven partner schools which include Ashbrow, Birkby Infants and Nursery, Birkby Juniors, Christ Church Academy, Fixby Junior and Infants, St Thomas Primary and North Huddersfield Trust School are dedicated to providing a range of quality opportunities, leading to successful outcomes for all pupils, whilst ensuring that parents and families are supported throughout.
By sharing expertise, experience and resources schools will be able to offer enhanced opportunities for children, staff and parents. Pupils regularly have opportunities to work and learn alongside children from other schools, ensuring that not only academic skills are developed, but also social skills for life outside of school.
Staff will benefit through inter school professional learning networks, which supports the development of an ethos and culture of collaboration amongst all our schools, which will have a clear impact on the lives of our children and young people.
The partnership extends further than the school day, and by working together, the Learning Community offers a full programme of after school, holiday and enrichment activities, providing a diverse range of activities to children – and often their parents and extended families. Everything from skateboarding to horse-riding, bee-keeping to rock-climbing will be on offer, along with a whole range of learning opportunities.
