After the success of the Salvation Army Christmas Present Appeal for the past 2 years, we have decided to participate again this year. Compassion is an attribute we value highly at Robin Hood Junior School and this appeal is a great way for the children to acknowledge the importance of thinking of others and showing kindness.
The Salvation Army receives a list from Sutton Social Services with the number of families who need help to make sure their children have some gifts to open this Christmas. Each class has been tasked to choose one gift that they would like to buy for the child they have been allocated. They will have to think about toys that have longevity and the kinds of gifts they would like to receive if they were ever in the situation where their family, for whatever reason, was unable to provide them with everything they needed.
There will be a Mufti-Day on Friday 22rd November where we are asking children to bring in at least 50p or £1 towards the gift they would like to donate. We ask that all children take their mufti money into class with them and give their donation to their teacher. The amount each class is able to spend on their gift will be determined by how much money they collectively raise.
The gifts will then be ordered and taken over to the Salvation Army on Monday 2nd December by selected children, ready to be wrapped and handed to the families ready for Christmas.
