‘Reverse Advent’

Throughout Advent the school family have been invited to contribute to our ‘Reverse Advent’. Those wishing to take part have kindly donated dried food items which school has collected and today we have made our first ‘Food Drop’ to the ‘Open Door ‘Project based at the Spode Site.

Thanks you to everyone who has contributed to make this Advent collection so spectacular. Members of Prep 6 helped Mr Denson, Miss Kent, Mr Ferris and Mrs Hutchinson to load the mini bus with all the food donations collected thus far.

Andrew, Head Boy and Amelia, Head Girl accompanied Miss Kent, Mr Ferris and Mrs Hutchinson to ‘Open Doors’ to unload the produce. The ‘Open Doors’ helper was astounded by the amount of food we had collected.

Thank you so much to everyone for your kindness.

We are continuing to collect items of food for ‘Open Doors’ as part of the Prep 6 Edmund Rice activities towards their Edmund Rice Awards, so we look forward to your continued support.
