CHRISTMAS CARDS & GIFTS

< Back to the news

Christmas is fast approaching and we know things will be very different this year. We appreciate that children and families enjoy giving cards and gifts to their friends and teachers in school and your kindness is always appreciated. However, due to the Covid restrictions and to eliminate any extra pressure during these difficult times, we would ask families NOT to send in cards or gifts this year for staff or other pupils.

We have made the decision as a school not to give gifts and cards to each other, but to nominate a charity that may benefit more. We have chosen 'Centrepoint' as our charity. They are a charity that support homeless young people. If anyone would like to join us, details can be found by following the link below:

We also know that many families like to make up the shoe boxes for Operation Christmas. Again, restrictions have put a stop to us collecting them in school this year. If you still want to do this, we would ask you to check out the Operation Christmas Child website:
