As we move towards the preparation for Christmas and the joy and hope this period brings, the children are starting to think about those who are less fortunate than themselves. The children have had raffles and cake sales, to support Children in Need and a football project for under privileged children in The Gambia. There are plans for another raffle, led by the children in Year 3, to support The Alder Hey Children's Hospital in Liverpool. We have had a real community effort collecting 120 shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child. We wish you all a Merry Christmas and a peaceful New Year.
