Christmas 2023 Information – all in one place!

Christmas Raffle

We are trying to make up some Christmas Colour Hampers as part of our raffle prizes this year and are looking for your help!

If you are able to send an item (gift or non perishable food item) in for our raffle hampers that is either mainly a red, green, white / silver or yellow / gold colour, as the ‘cost’ for Non Uniform on Monday 4th December, we would be very grateful as we can use these items to then create our Christmas Colour raffle hampers.

Christmas Swap Shop

It is an expensive season, and we are looking for ways to help.

In the style of our pre-loved uniform rail that we have in our foyer, we would like to operate the same system for Christmas themed clothes. We have the rail, we just need donations of Christmas clothes that your children have grown out of and are ready to go to their next home.

If you are able to support this, please send your pre loved Christmas clothing into school as soon as possible.

Christmas Dinner

School Christmas Dinner is taking place on Wednesday 20th December.

The organisation for this meal needs a lot of careful planning due to the popularity of this meal option.

Please help out our kitchen by booking in advance. There will only be the Christmas menu or sandwich choice available that day.

Cafe Nadolig (Christmas Cafe)

We will be celebrating with Christmas sweet treats and also our Welsh skills on December 21st and December 22nd.

Each class will have a 45 minute time slot in our school hall for your children to share their skills with a parent / carer in our Cafe Nadolig.

Please bring some spare change as you will be able to buy some sweet treats and enjoy some Christmas spirit, maybe even some Christmas Carols!
