Summer Reading Challenge

Your child is invited to sign up for this year’s Summer Reading Challenge. Sign up for FREE at your local library!

The Summer Reading Challenge encourages children to keep reading during the school summer holidays – and to enjoy reading anything they like! Children aged 4-11 are invited to set a reading goal and collect rewards for their reading. It’s completely FREE to take part.  

It is an amazing way to boost children’s confidence – last year 72% of children taking part felt more confident reading.

Red Nose Day

Friday 15th March, 2024


Red Nose Day is back and we’re fundraising for Comic Relief on Friday 15th March. 


Children can come to school in fancy dress or wear anything silly - the idea being to have a super-fun day in school and help raise lots of money along the way. 


Please help us reach our target and donate online:

Thank you!


Charity Fundraising update, February 2024

Hawarden Dee Valley Rotary would like to thank Hawarden Village Church School for its support to the End Polio campaign in October 2023. The local community joined us when the church and castle gates were lit in purple. It was wonderful to see a cross-section of the community as we met outside St Deiniol's; some recalling memories of family and friends who had been affected by Polio when they were children. The school helped us raise over £500 by wearing something purple or buying crocus corms to plant at home. We are very grateful for this support. The funds raised have been sent to the International Rotary World Polio Eradication Fund. This is then doubled by the generosity of Bill and Melinda Gates.
