There will be a Christmas lunch on Tuesday 20th December for the school prefects to thank them for all of their efforts over the past year. The lunch will be paid for by the school with no contribution from the prefects and will start in the dining hall from 11.45 to 12.30. I look forward to seeing you there.

Dress down day last day of term
This year the Charities Committee will be having a Christmas jumper competition at the end of term, alongside the dress down day!  Please wear your most cliche, sparkliest or brightest jumper for the chance to Win a prize!! There will be a junior AND a senior winner from each house and the winners will be announced at the end of the day!

This term the money raised from our dress down day will be split between the school's Duke Of Edinburgh pupils and Streetworks Winter Appeal.  Streetworks is a homeless charity based in Edinburgh with the aspiration to get people off the streets and into a stable home. 

If there are any questions please speak to Chloe Yeung or anyone else in the committee!  It is the usual suggested £1 donation.

We look forward to seeing you in your jumpers.
