Activities for families
We are delighted that activities will be running again in the community room next academic year. Most of these activities are funded or supported by Friends of Hannah More.
Tuesdays - 9.00-11.00 - Sewing. This course will restart in October
Thursdays 9-11 Craft - A new course focusing on books, crafts and literacy skills. In the autumn there will be a specifi focus on the Bristol Bus Boycott of 1963.
Fridays - Cooking with Travelling Kitchen. Speak to Sarah Franke at school if you are interested.
Support for families
Greggs have some hardship vouchers available in 2023, for those who have not applied within the last 12 months - more info is here
There is a list of other organisations providing support here. The council also make emergency payments, for example if you have no food or cannot afford to heat your home.
Family swims were very popular in 2023 and we hope to book dates for 2024 soon! We know the 6pm slot is not great for everybody, but it is the only time you can book the whole pool. Friends pay £200 for each swim - we get grant funding to cover most of cost. And school staff kindly give up their time to help out! Under 8s must have a parent in the water with them. You can bring ONE older sibling (Year 7 or above) only. The guidelines are here...
Our adult community history project linked to the SS Great Britain is researching ways to make this wonderful Bristol attraction more accessible for families and more relevant to our community. The community researchers also helped to bust some myths - did you know for example that the SS Great Britain was a passenger ship and a cargo boat - but never had any links to the slave trade (it was built a generation after!)?

Our Hub library is open after school on Tuesdays and Fridays during term-time, for families to come and have a look or borrow a book.
