Thank you to everyone for supporting our charity appeals.  Next week we are continuing to collect food for our local Food Bank and also holding a charity non-uniform day for St Basils, a local youth homeless charity.  More information is below...  

Charity Collection for our Local Foodbank – The last day to non-perishable food for our local foodbank is Monday 16th December.  All donations of in-date, non-perishable food should be given to form tutors during morning registration and will be donated to Erdington Food Bank.  
If you want to donate but not sure what to give, a typical food parcel consists of three days nutritionally balanced, tinned and dried food.  This can include a selection from cereal, soup, pasta, rice, tinned tomatoes/pasta sauce, lentils, beans and pulses, tinned meat, tinned vegetables, tea/coffee, tinned fruit, biscuits, UHT milk, long life fruit juice or squash.  In addition, many food banks also provide essential non-food items such as toiletries and hygiene products.  Thank you for your support.

Charity Non-Uniform Day – On Friday 20th December pupils are invited to donate to St Basils and wear something different to their normal school uniform.  St Basils is a local charity that works with vulnerable young people in Birmingham to enable them to find and keep a home, grow their confidence, develop their skills, increase opportunities and prevent homelessness.  Pupils should give their donation to their form tutor during morning registration.  Thank you for your continued support.
