Reverse Advent Calendar

For Christmas 2016, we decided to do something a little different around school and we introduced the idea of a Reverse Advent Calendar.

Each day throughout December we added an item to the boxes set up around school. Before we broke up for the Christmas Holidays we donated the items to the foodbank in Thirsk.

As you can see from the picture below we had many items generously given from pupils, staff and parents. Items included food, treats and toiletries.

Thank you to everyone that kindly donated – the staff at the foodbank were very thankful.


Having received a thank you from The Clock, we are very happy to report that they were able to put together and deliver 40 extra special food parcels for young people and families who are in financial hardship.  The responses were incredibly including ‘Please thank everyone for thinking of us’.

Thank you all again for your support with this very worthwhile project – truly the spirit of Christmas.
