Dear Parents,

Our Year 12 students have now launched their Christmas Community Project where they are asking each year group at school to focus on collecting vital supplies for the many families facing a desolate Christmas. They have linked up with a local Charity who are supporting families in crises here in the South of Tenerife. We are running the collection from today until Friday 11th December.

Listed below are the items being collected by each year group:
3E - Nappies for babies 3 to 9 months
3S - Nappies for babies 9 to 15 months

4B - Powdered milk or baby formula for ages 1 to 6 months, 6 to 12 months and follow up milk for older babies.

5S & 5M - All baby accessories; moisturiser, wipes, baby shampoo, baby lotion etc.

6M - adult/teenage personal hygiene items; soap, shampoo, shower gel, sponges etc.

6J - Oral hygiene to include: toothpaste, toothbrushes, deodorant, mouth wash

Yr 7- Personal adult hygiene items; soap, deodorants, shower gel, toothpaste, toothbrushes, hair gel, moisturizer or similar items.

Yr 8 - female sanitary items, all sizes, and types please or female orientated personal items e,g. a hairbrush, face wipes. Moisturiser etc

Yrs 9,10,11 & 6th Form - Dry foods, tinned items, milk, oil, etc at least 2 items per student. Some grocery luxury food items would also be welcomed - check the sell by date please.

I understand that this year has been hard for many of our families but together, we can make a real difference.

Once again, thank you so much for your continued support.
