As part of our Extended Schools Cluster programme, we are delighted to be able to fund a 4-week traditional cookery course for all parents in our cluster schools.
Each week will focus on a specific culture from around the world and a representative from each of the 4 countries will facilitate the cooking and supply the ingredients.
The traditions included in the course are: Indian, Polish, Chinese and Thai.
The course will be held in the Home Economics Department in Hazelwood Integrated College on Thursday evenings between 6.30 – 8.30 starting on Thursday 15th November through to Thursday 6th December.

There are limited places available and this will be issued on a first come, first served basis amongst the cluster schools. As the cookery course is fully funded it is free to attend and you will be able to take home the meal that you have cooked on the night.

May we remind all parents that we need up to date contact numbers in case of emergency or school closure due to bad weather.  Contact the office to inform the school of any changes please.

Parental involvement plays a major role in the life of the school. We value our parents as vital co-educators in their child's progress and success at school. We aim to create an active partnership between parents and teacher.

Just ten minutes a day can help your child and give them skills and confidence to do better at home, school and in life. Save the Children


NEW PARENT? Thinking about sending your child to Hazelwood? Parents are very welcome to come and tour the school. Do not hesitate to contact us.


The school have an active PTA who are dedicated to supporting the school financially. Events organised in the past by the PTA have included a fashion show, summer and Christmas fairs, and the infamous 'Hazelwood's got Talent'. For more information on joining the PTA contact Miss McDowell.

We’re happy to announce that parents can now download a .zip archive of their child’s work for free, anytime.

For parents who want to save their child’s work outside of Seesaw at the end of the year, this is a much simpler option than downloading files individually. See how it works!
