About twice a year, all classrooms will have one month of the school year to contribute to the Parish Welfare Freezer.  The month of November has been assigned to Junior Hub 1 and families are asked to donate cooked food or non perishable items.  The items can be tinned, baking or a main meal e.g. casserole, lasagna, muffins or biscuits.  Please bring any food donations to the school office on Friday mornings.  Thank you.
