School Council have been involved with "Old and Young Together at Christmas" this half term. The scheme asked for schools to raise money to pay for items which could then be given as gifts to different care homes around the island. Items such as: word search books, lip balm, slipper socks, flannels, toothbrushes, toothpaste, hand cream and chocolate bars were delivered to school along with approximately 75 paper bags.
School Council gave up part of their lunch times to decorate the bags with Christmas messages and pictures and then had lots of fun filling the bags with one of each item.
The final and best part of this initiative was a trip on Wednesday 19th December to Elder Grange. School Council visited each resident to say "Merry Christmas" and present them with a bag they had made. There was even time to sing a couple of Christmas songs and help with the raffle! The trip was enjoyed by the residents and children alike!
School Council would like to say thank you to everyone who helped make this possible through your kind donations on our Christmas Jumper Day.
