Dear Parents & Carers,

Christmas Jumper Day – Friday 13th December

Friday 13th December is Christmas Jumper Day in aid of Save the Children.

Children can come into school wearing a Christmas Jumper in place of their normal cardigan or sweatshirt.

We do not expect you to go out and buy a jumper specifically for the occasion. If your child does not own a Christmas jumper they can add tinsel or something Christmassy to their uniform.

We would suggest a voluntary donation of £1.00 per child. All monies raised will go to Save the Children.

Thank you for your support.

Yours sincerely,

Sarah Hurwood
Headteacher

Dear Parents & Carers,

Christmas Appeal

This year we have decided to support two local charities for our Christmas Appeal these are The Chocolate Run based in Harlow and Norway House Based in North Weald.

The Chocolate Run charity provides a shelter for the homeless at Christmas for 10 days. They provide simple accommodation, food, clothing and toiletries as well as a warm and friendly welcome. To make this happen they rely on donations.

Therefore donations of any of the following would be very gratefully received:-

Warm Clothing
Thermal Socks
Gloves
Non-perishable foods
Thermos Flasks (helping people sleeping out to have a hot drink)
Lip balm
Deodorant
Toothbrushes
Wet Wipes
Toothpaste
Plasters

Norway House provides homeless families with temporary accommodation until such time as permanent accommodation becomes available. This year Norway House has requested Selection Boxes which will be passed on to the children in their accommodation.

Donations of any of the above can be sent into school from Monday 9th December.

Your support, as always, is very much appreciated.

Yours sincerely,

Sarah Hurwood

Due to limited space and logistical organisation, each family will be issued with 4 tickets. Two tickets for the morning performance and two tickets for the afternoon performance.

We would prefer younger siblings did not attend. However, if you do need to bring siblings they will only be admitted to the 9.30am morning performance and will need to sit on your lap.

Thank you for your continued support.

Yours sincerely,

Sarah Hurwood
