Acts of kindness ,warm the hearts of both the receiver and the giver

As part of the promotion of positive mental health in the school, this year we plan to participate in the’ shoe box appeal’.We are asking students to bring items to put into the shoe boxes and we will combine the donated goods to try and create as many completed shoe boxes as possible.If students would like to donate completed ‘shoe boxes’ we would be delighted to receive them, but this may not suit everyone, so we are asking the students of the school to try to contribute at least one thing or 50 cent towards this very worthy cause.

We are asking students to bring in their donations on the Mondayand Tuesday after the Mid-Term, the 6th and 7th of November.The type items that are suitable for donation are listed on the attached sheet. We hope you all have a well deserved rest over the break.

Thank you for your continued support ,

Kind Regards,

The Student Council @ The Amber Flag Team.
