Reverse Advent Calendar

Advent 2018

As part of our preparations for Christmas, throughout Advent we will be having a reverse Advent Calendar in school. The aim of this is to allow our school community to support those who are less fortunate than ourselves at this special time of year. We will make the hampers in school and they will then be distributed through our church.

Throughout Advent we are inviting the children to bring in things to make up part of a class hamper. The children can bring in something each week or a collection of things when it suits. The items which have been suggested to us are:

Sugar                             Spaghetti                      Sweets                   Chocolate

Vegetable Soup              Jam                              Garden Peas           Tuna Chunks

Tomato Soup                  Cereal                          Rice Pudding          Chocolate Log

Tea Bags                        Mince Pies                   Cracker Biscuits    Tinned Fruit

Baked Beans                  Christmas Pudding      Fruit Juice

Tomatoes                       Biscuits                       Tinned Ham


Donations are gratefully received from Monday 3rd December.
