Reverse Advent Calendar Appeal

A great start has been made to our Reverse Advent Calendar Appeal.  Young people are showing how much they care about other this Christmas.  They have been asked to bring in one item per day to donate to a local food bank.  Over 700 items have been collected so far with four more days still to go.  See below for pictures of what has already been collected and the link to the poster with information about what to donate.  Our thanks also to local businesses for their support: Braehead Pharmacy donated a bag full of toiletries and RS McColls donated a big box of tinned goods.  Pupils should bring their items into registration and any one else who wishes to contribute can do so through the school office.
