Rotary shoebox appeal 2021! We did it!!!!!
Thank you to all the pupils and staff who have filled 50 shoeboxes which are to be sent to a variety of countries to spread a little Christmas joy round Europe. The 50 boxes were collected this morning and are now on their way. Thank you to the Rotary Club of Alford for organising the boxes and their collection. Mrs Wotherspoon (Head teacher), Hamish (Head Prefect), Mrs Rees-Jenkins (Interact link teacher) and Mr Cookson (Depute Head teacher) helped with the delivery with John (Rotary club of Alford).
We were absolutely blown away by the generosity and enthusiasm of the school community for rising to the challenge. Special thanks must go to the S2 CLAN classes who each filled a number of these boxes! The rest were filled by staff and interact members along with pupils who wanted to be involved in this worthy cause. In addition to filling the 50 boxes we also donated £100 to cover the shipping costs as Rotary International are a charity organisation and do not have funds to cover this. We have sent boxes to help all ages and families. The group will let you know more about their journey as we hear it.
