18th December – Christmas non-uniform day & ‘Film Friday’ for ‘Educaid’
As you will be aware the last day of this school term falls on Friday 18th December. You may also be aware that we have a student body called the ‘Charity Group’ who invent and organise ways to raise awareness of, and funds for, local and international charities.
The Charity Group met with me recently to ask permission to hold a fund-raising event on the last day of term, you will gather from the heading of this letter that I have granted them permission!
Therefore all staff and students are going to be encouraged to come to school wearing ‘Christmas non-uniform’ with particular emphasis on Christmas jumpers, Christmas hats, Christmas scarves, Christmas earrings ……. I suspect you get the idea. Students and staff will be asked to make a contribution of £1 to ‘Educaid’ for the ‘privilege’ of wearing their Christmas finery.
The Charity Group are also organising various competitions to run at lunchtime on this day, details of these will be communicated to students over the next week.
Please note that normal lessons will continue for periods 1-3 on this day so students will need to bring all of their usual books and equipment for these classes.
At the request of our group tutors we are then running an early lunch followed by an extended tutor time in the afternoon, this will allow them to run a ‘Film Friday’ activity from 12:45 until 14:45. Details of this activity will come to students via their tutors.
School will finish at 14:45 as usual.
Details of the work of the charity who will benefit from the day can be found at – www.educaid.org.uk
Many thanks for your continued support.
