Every year our students enjoy many of the usual traditions such as a Christmas Show, visiting the local church for a carol service and wearing festive jumpers for charity. One tradition that has become deeply embedded over the years is the Hampers for the Homeless Competition. The whole school gets involved by donating food and decorating hampers that are donated to local charity St. Martins Housing Trust in time for Christmas. The hampers are judged for best decoration and most filled and the winning forms receive chocolatey prizes for their efforts. This year’s winners were class 8F who created a beautiful snowy cottage filled with food, scarves and blankets, and class 8CR who filled a hamper and two bags full of food and treats. Runners up for best decoration were 7B with a Polar Express of goodies and 7CO who created a Father Christmas going down a chimney. Runners up for most filled were 8T who made a large train packed full of items and 10T who filled two boxes with essential food items.
Well done to everyone who took part and a big thank you on behalf of those who will have a better Christmas because of your effort and generosity!
