Boomerang & the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust

Boomerang is proud to announce a new partnership with the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust providing support for this incredibly worthwhile cause. Boomerang Ed will actively promote the various youth initiatives that Dame Kelly and her organisation are running for young people and schools anyway we can – look out in your 2015-16 planners!

“I’m thrilled that my charity, the Dame Kelly Holmes Trust has welcomed Boomerang Media on board as a Media Partner/National Supporter. As I always say, as an athlete I could not have achieved what I achieved without the team around me. And it’s the same with my charity: we could not do the work we do without the fantastic support of partnerships, helping us impact on more young people, using the skills of more athletes, in more areas across the UK. A big thank you to Boomerang Media and we’re really excited about working together as we move forwards.” – Dame Kelly Holmes

Landscape Planner improved

Our Large Landscape Planner which proved so popular last year with it’s mould-breaking format with 25% more writing space than standard planners continues to develop and improve.

Working closely with the pioneering schools who were first to see the benefits of the increased capacity, we have developed a wiro-bound version, which allows for the planner to be folded wholly under itself so that desk space need no longer be at a premium.

Primary School Planners expanded

The ever-popular Primary School Planners gets a make-over for 2014/15 and now contains an extra 16-pages of colourful and stimulating content.

The PAL has now swelled from 112 pages to a bursting at the seams 128 pages. Not only does it have 50 pages of week-a-page calendar section it now has 20 pages of Reading Records, 20 pages of Spelling Lists and a whopping 30 pages of vibrant and fun learning academic resource.
