For the last few Christmases, we have donated money and gifts to the shoebox appeal and Tipton Christian Church. However, this year we felt we need to help our own. The pandemic has had a MASSIVE impact on our families, and it felt right for us as a school, to provide support and some stability at Christmas time.
Year 6 have focused their English lessons on the pandemic, and the effects it has had on poverty, but especially our families. Below are the letters that we sent to Tesco community hub to ask them to support our Christmas Hampers.
Staff were asked to donate any tinned items, or packaged foods that were long life and to bring them into school.
On Thursday 17th December, we spent the morning delivering our hampers and Christmas presents to families. They were all so so grateful.
Chris Ward, Sandwell's Director of Education also commended our efforts as a school and what we have done for our school community.
This year has proved more than ever that we must support our own, and we cannot express our thanks enough to everyone who has helped towards these hampers. Our families are such an important and integral part of our school community, and knowing we can support them like this has honestly felt so special.
