Christmas Jumper Day – Friday 15th December

Time to don your best festive woolly on Friday 15th as, here at the Academy, we try to raise money for Save the Children.

We are asking for a £1 donation to wear a festive jumper. There’s no need to splash out on snazzy new sweaters to join in the fun, you could borrow one or bling up an old woolly with a few decorations.

We’ll be turning old sweaters into sparkly new creations in Christmas craft sessions at school so all your child needs to do is bring in an old unwanted jumper (plus a few decorations if you have them to spare) and a donation. There will be a prize awarded to the best jumper, whether made on the day or bought!

On the 14th and 15th of December, pupils will have the opportunity to guess how many sprouts are in the jar for a chance at winning a box of chocolates! There will also be a range of sweet treats available for the pupils to buy as well as a range of other fun activities – all with the aim of raising s much money as possible.
