Jak’s Den Christmas Advent: Hi all, hope you’re all excited for Christmas and are looking forward to a well deserved break. This year we are looking to support Jack’s Den by giving back any spare change every day for the month of December starting this Thursday the 1st of December. S6 Pupils will be standing at every entrance to the school from 8:15 am till first period and at lunch times with buckets for your money. Every day we will put the daily total of what we have raised on the Christmas Advent Tree down in the reception area. We hope you all give a small donation each day for the entire month to support Jak’s Den- a little means a lot! Many Thanks.
