Monday 19th December - Service Above Self Day
As part of our involvement with the Rotary Club Service Above Self, Year 5 spent the day making Christmas crafts for the elderly. Service Above Self focuses on helping others in the local community, charities and looking after our environment.
The children enjoyed making peppermint creams, paper Christmas trees, reindeer tree decorations and Christmas crackers. The children spent time discussing our elderly community and then writing a thoughtful message to attach to their gift to give to someone for Christmas.
A Thoughtful Box of Christmas crafts has also been sent to Byng House in Southport. Byng House is home to the Royal British Legion and the guests staying over Christmas will enjoy the craft items.
