I would like to thank all pupils and families who donated a gift towards our Christmas appeal in aid of children 1st. The number of gifts we received and the range of presents was outstanding. We collected selection boxes and sweets, a large range of books for toddlers through to teenagers, art and craft sets and a huge range of toys including lego and remote control cars. We collected all the presents and donated them to Children 1st who distributed the gifts to children across Edinburgh and the Lothians. The staff at Children 1st were so grateful and very impressed by the large number of presents that we collected.
I really enjoyed running our Christmas appeal. Taking part in a community project has engaged our pupils from S1-S6 encouraging them to reflect and think of others at a special time of year. I am extremely proud of the support shown. Your kindness and generosity is greatly appreciated.
All the best for a happy 2016.
From Leesa Fallon, (SFL Teacher at JGHS)
