We have been planning our festive programme for the remaining few weeks of our Autumn 2 term (albeit COVID compliant!). We are all especially determined not to miss out as Christmas is a special time for the vast majority at Harrington. But, as we are all too aware, things will be a bit different this year.
We will be hosting a raffle for winter prizes from Monday 7th December - 2 tickets for 50p.
The charity we always support at this time of year is Shelter - any loose change or donations can be made to our Gingerbread House collection box from Monday 7th December.
Our Christmas craft afternoon will still occur, albeit without our families and in our own bubbles on Thursday 10th December.
Pupils can join in Christmas jumper day on Friday 11 December by wearing a festive top - no charge (as school will make a donation to Save the Children)
Christmas parties will occur in our separate bubbles on Tuesday 15th December. Pupils can come dressed in their party gear all day (so make sure they are warm enough) with festive activities being held in the morning, before our party afternoon. Pupils can bring their own snack to have in the afternoon as our usual sharing of party food donations will not be able to be offered. Pupils can bring a bag of crisps, wrapped cake, chocolate biscuit. Drinks will be provided.
And to finish, Christmas dinner will be served on Wednesday 16th December for those who have already booked it. No further orders can be taken.
Pupils break up for the holiday at the usual home-times on Friday 18th December.
We return to school on Monday 4th January 2021.
We are doing all we can to keep everyone safe - please continue to do your bit. Keep apart from other families in and outside of school and avoid mixing class bubbles. Please continue to use the 2m rule with other people including staff. Cross-contamination poses the biggest risk to all at school, mainly created by people bending the rules. We want to finish the term on a high - by staying open and letting our pupils have a fun time. Let's stick to the rules and keep safe - HANDS - FACE -SPACE.
