Honley High Secondary School in Holmfirth has received a whopping £2,000 donation from PK Education. The donation from PK’s Leeds branch will be used by the school to fund equipment and events for its PE department.
PK Education has worked closely with the school for seven years to help them meet their staffing needs. Now, PK is helping the school’s rugby, football, netball and athletics teams stand out from the crowd when they’re competing with the donation of full team kits.
The school’s rugby, football, netball and athletic teams now boast full team kits paid for by the donation. It will also be used to pay for travel and transport for pupils taking part in the England Golf Schools Team Championship at the renowned Woodhall Spa Golf Club. In 2016, Honley High qualified for the England Golf School Nationals.
Noel O’Connor, Head of PE at Honley High, explained: “We’re so grateful to PK for the donation they’ve made. This money will support five extra-curricular activities within the school, which is huge. We always look to provide these opportunities to our students, but the financial limitations are unfortunately only the beginning of the issues schools can face. But the way that these activities motivate and enthuse the children, you can’t put a price on.”
Neil Waddington, Business Development Manager at PK Education’s Leeds office, added: “We are delighted to support Honley High. We have worked with the school for a number of years so know the far-reaching benefits that this money will make to supporting the development of extra-curricular activities for so many pupils.
“Being recruiters, we understand first-hand how important it is for pupils to have access to non-academic experiences that they can put on a CV and use to develop their future, whether that is in college, university or an apprenticeship. Participation in sporting activities is a great way to demonstrate everything from team work to dedication.”
PK Education supplies teachers, cover supervisors and classroom assistants to primary secondary and SEN schools as well as alternative education providers including Pupil Referral Units and hospital schools.
