Christmas is approaching fast and our children have been thinking about those around them who may be struggling, and those who find the festive season particularly difficult.
So School Council would like us to do something a little different year, and are leading Grimley & Holt in a whole-school Reverse Advent Calendar.
The idea is that the children will take it in turn to donate different items each day in the run up to Christmas. In our final week this term, we will distribute all the goods to local foodbanks and our local homeless charities – teaching the importance of helping others and what is truly important at Christmas time, especially after a year like 2020.
We are excited to see the collection grow… Keep an eye out for updates in our school newsletter!
