  • Christmas Cards – The online shop opens on 23rd November and will remain open until midnight on 30th November.
  • The estimated date for dispatch of the cards to the school is 6th December.
  • Monday 20th November UNICEF Day for Change. Their challenge this year is to help malnourished children to grow up healthy and strong. The challenge is simple: Change something about your school day and collect as much change and cash as possible – helping to keep children safe from hunger. Every pound raised will be matched by The Power of Nutrition, a charitable foundation, so fundraising goes even further for children. We are looking for any loose change that pupils can bring in on Monday. Your help with this challenge would be greatly appreciated.
  • Our school library is looking fantastic! A huge thank you for all the books that have been handed in. We are still looking for donations of fiction titles. If you are having a clear out and have any books you no longer want please hand them into the school office. We would be delighted to have them! Thank you.
