Christmas 2020

Whilst we are unable to celebrate Christmas this year in the true Hanley style we cannot let the term end without a version of our festive traditions.

 

Friday 11th December - Christmas Jumper Day

Please wear your Christmas jumper or something festive with your uniform, and bring in £1 to support our international project in Tanzania. We are raising money to build a new classroom in Maweni Primary School, and now need to raise the final £3300 to complete construction of the roof before the rainy season, for plastering, painting, and for windows, doors and furniture to be made.

 

Friday 11th December - 7pm - Virtual Carol Service and Christmas Cracker

In normal years this is an absolute highlight, beginning in St Mary's Church for a candlelit traditional carol service, and continuing in the hall with the most fabulous evening of festive fun. This year we are joining with our friends in Maweni Primary School for a virtual event, organised and compiled jointly by our sixth form Charity and Tanzania committees. We are also aiming to raise money for the Maweni classroom project.

Please get your outfit ready for the last day and gain sponsors to try and raise as much money as possible for the Children with Cancer UK charity. You will need to fill in your sponsorship form and bring this in on the day. All sponsorship money will be donated via sims pay this year, there will also be opportunity to give small change to our donation buckets on the day. There will be competitions happening throughout the day and prizes on offer. Looking forward to seeing you all in your outfits - the more creative the better!
