Friday 13th: End Polio Now day
We are holding a ‘wear purple for polio’ day on Friday 13th October. We will come round classes collecting donations which will be donated to the End Polio Now cause.
In addition we are also selling raffle tickets for a pupil and staff raffle which will finally be drawn on Friday break time.
Hi all, we need your help.
It’s that time of year again for the Rotary Shoebox Appeal. This year the boxes are now £3 per box so when you donate items we would be really grateful for the £3 donation too.
The shoeboxes are open to all staff or pupils to contribute too and we will be filling the boxes every Thursday lunchtime in B1-23 after the holidays.
