Christmas Care Packages

As you are aware, every Christmas we aim to support the local community in the form of care packages.

This festive season, we aim to bless residents of local care homes in and around Neath Port Talbot.  We would like to ensure each vulnerable resident can be bless with a care package, kindly donated by you and your family.  This year, the need to support those that are vulnerable is greater than ever before. So, each gift will be greatly appreciated.

A few suggestions to help you fill your care package:

  • Chocolates / biscuits / treats
  • Warm socks / bed slippers
  • Cosy blanket or water bottle
  • Lip balm and hand cream
  • Face cloth / soap
  • Note / card written from you

Please can you pack your care package and hand it into the school office by the first week of December so that they can be distributed in time for Christmas.

Rights Respecting Schools

We are currently working really hard towards our Silver Rights Respecting Schools Award (RSSA).

Each class has a Children’s Rights representative who will attend meetings to learn about the Articles and to feed back information to their classes.  For more information on this and our other pupil voice groups, please visit our Pupil Voice page.
