Play Dates is back on Tuesdays from 2 - 3.30pm. All children from the local area (up to Primary 2 ) with a learning difficulty and their parents/carers are welcome to attend. Come along and help your child learn through play, while getting support and advice from some of our school staff. We look forward to seeing you there.


Thanks to everyone who came to the sponsored walk. We couldn’t have asked for better weather! Thanks to staff and PTA members who volunteered and organised it and to the Rapid Relief Team for providing the gorgeous food.

Its that time of year when Christmas is coming quickly! Well done to our 3 Christmas Card design winners who will be having their designs turned into Hill Croft Christmas cards. The winners are:

  • The Nursery pupils, class of 2017/18 for their lovely Christmas tree
  • Thomas Green from J9 for his baby Jesus in the manger
  • Racheal Kyle from S6 for her fantastic Rudolph picture

I'm sure you'll agree they all look amazing! The cards are being printed over the half-term holidays and will be available to buy shortly afterwards, so please hold off on buying cards just yet and help us support Hill Croft!

Well done to our amazing winners

Hill Croft are organising a sponsored walk on Saturday 21st April between 11 and 1. We will be meeting and finishing at the school and there will be refreshments available upon return to school. There will be two routes which are both accessible by wheelchairs and buggies. The 1km route will have a Hungry Caterpillar theme and the 3km route will have a Disney/Star Wars theme. All pupils and their families are very welcome and we are hoping to have a great day’s fun while raising money for our sensory garden. Sponsor sheets will be sent home after Easter.

Department of Education have stated that all schools will close tomorrow for a second day. Hill Croft will be closed again on Tuesday 17th. We will keep everyone updated. Hope everyone stays safe.
