The school Christmas party has been rescheduled. The party will now be held on the last day of term (Friday 22 December in the morning). Pupils may wear their Christmas jumper (no charity donation needed) or their school uniform.
This Wednesday there will be a Christmas Jumper Day to raise funds for Save the Children. All pupils wearing a Christmas Jumper should bring in a donation of £1.
This is NOT a non-uniform day. All pupils not wearing a Christmas jumper should be in uniform.
All community members are invited to the school final of the Youth and Philanthropy Initiative (YPI) at the high school on Tuesday 12 December at 2.15 pm.
