On Tuesday 18th December our Senior School Council invites the local Senior Citizens into school to attend our Xmas baking and carol event. The group had a fantastic day baking chocolate logs and singing carols with a group from or school choir. This is only one of the community initiatives our school council have spearheaded this term and it was a huge success. We hope to welcome them back for future events in the new year.
