Thank you so much to all of the families who donated tons and tons of tins and tins during Advent and today on our Christmas jumper day. The can collection was also boosted by a very generous retiring collection from our Carol Service this week which raised £176 to go towards buying items for our Christmas Caring Cans tree. Pictured here is the tree in all its splendour, carefully constructed with mathematical and engineering precision by Mr Pratley and Mr Land.
On Friday afternoon Mrs Knight and Mrs Walls’ drama club presented their Christmas show of The Bethlehem Star, and we were lucky enough to be joined by Councillor Wade, former Mayor of Havant, and his wife Mrs Wade. After watching the show, we ‘presented’ to Councillor Wade our Food Bank donations, and he spoke to the whole school about the difference their generosity will make to those families in need and the homeless of Havant and Waterlooville this Christmas.
Pictured below are Councillor Wade and Mrs Wade, Mrs Pearson who was the inspiration behind the project, and Mr Land and Mr Pratley, who along with their Year 6 classes coordinated the collection and construction.
