Changes to the Mercy Centre Christmas Collection
Families who have been with us a while will know that each year at around this time we do a collection for the Human Development Foundation - Mercy Centre.
In the past we have always collected toys for the children but in recent years they have had more and more schools and organisations collecting these. This year we called and asked what it was they needed us to contribute to the community. The contact at the Mercy Centre was pleased that we had called and explained that what they wanted from us was the everyday items listed below:
UHT Milk - small boxes
Sauces for cooking
NOTE: There is no need for rice at the moment as they have a large supply
In addition, they are also requesting:
There is no need to wrap any of these items, but there will be boxes places in all of the Foundation Stage and KS1 areas. Help us to explain to your children why we are collecting these things and even if they are not able to go shopping with you to buy the items, please let them put them into the collection box themselves.

The Friday Night Game
Some of you might have heard of ‘The Friday Night Game’, a popular Basketball event that has been hosted at High School. We are pleased to announce another of these exciting evenings coming up at the end of November - and all for a good cause.
The Nord Anglia Expedition to Tanzania has in recent years become an important highlight on the calendar of some of our older students, as they travel to Africa to take part in community projects. One of the conditions of their place on the expedition is to do the majority of fundraising themselves. Check out the poster below for details on how you can contribute just coming to watch a little basketball, some amazing dance performances and more.
