The Mytholmroyd Gala on the 7th July was great. Fund raising was cut short by a certain football match - but it was a lovely day.

Maureen Dean's cream tea on Sunday 4th August 2019 was enjoyed by everyone. It also raised over £117 for the HBTS.

The Summer camp in Paratico from the 27th August to the 9th September was a great opportunity for strenghthening our friendship with Paratico in Italy. Kalifa Cuben, George English Burns & Erin Yates (from last year) travelled with Jane Jackson to teach the local children English. Kalifa, George and Erin were great representatives for Calder High and made an excellent impression.
