Golden Postbox Roadshow

Following the success of our Golden Girls at the Rio 2016 Olympic Games, Holcombe Hockey Club is running its own Holcombe Golden Postbox Schools Roadshow.

Standing at one metre high, Holcombe's Golden Postbox will travel around local Primary Schools near to the hockey club. Through English lessons or homework, pupils will be encouraged to write to Maddie Hinch, Shona McCallin, Sam Quek and Nicola White about their Rio 2016 Olympic memories, how they might have been inspired by the golden girls and what their hopes and ambitions are within sport. Pupils will post their letters in the Golden Postbox for the Golden Girls to read at the end of the Roadshow. Guidance for schools can be downloaded here.

     

Golden Postbox created by Terry Malone, professional carpenter

"The Golden Postbox was both an innovative and exciting idea for schools to engage with. As a school that has had issues with the standards of writing compared to reading and maths, we were only too keen to engage with the project. The fact that we have 57% boys within our school means we are always on the lookout for good hooks with which to engage children with writing. The Golden Postbox was perfect; it provided a motivation to write, to contact successful individuals who wouldn’t normally be a part of our world, and also to celebrate a great sport and achievement. Whilst I always knew that the outcomes would be positive, I never imagined that so many “personal bests”, so many best pieces of work and so much pride could be generated by the activity. Children were finishing their letters right up until the moment that the postbox was taken back to Holcombe, and we have such a legacy of great writing throughout the school as a direct result of the activity. Thank you Holcombe for such an innovative idea! " Matthew Clark, Headteacher, West Malling Primary School
