These children would like to wish everyone in the Longroyde community a Merry Christmas, as their donations were in lieu of buying Christmas cards and gifts.

I met the KS2 children last week, and Mrs Buchanan met with the KS1 pupils. We looked at the gift options and considered the benefits of each. The children then discussed what gifts they wanted to buy to help families and communities living in poverty. They decided upon the following gifts;

Making a living Water for all Other Projects
Supergoat x2 Safe Water for a Community Education for Girls
Poverty busting pig Life Changing Loo Hope for a refugee x2
Life-Changing Chicken Keep the water running Gift of Light
Heroic Honey Bees A Wonderful Water Pump
A Pile of Poo

I always say this, but I really do mean it … it is always an absolute pleasure to run this initiative and observe our children discussing sincerely and wisely how to spend their money to help others less fortunate. It is one of the highlights of my year, and I am so proud of them.

They truly do embody our school values.

Thank you also to the office staff who collected the
donations, and Mrs Buchanan who has collated the money on the FTR site and purchased their gifts.

Have a happy and safe Christmas and holiday period everyone.
Mrs S Mitchell, PSHE Co-ordinator
