Non-uniform day Friday 23 November

Dear Parent/Carer

Friday 23 November is non-uniform day; in exchange, we ask that children bring in a small gift that may be used in the Secret Santa room at the Christmas Bazaar. To ensure that we get an even spread of gifts we ask that children donate from the list below.

  • Reception and Year 4: Gifts for Her
  • Year 2 and Year 6: Gifts for Him
  • Year 3 and Year 5: Bottles (Bubble bath, shampoo, wine etc.) and Jars (jams, chutneys etc)
  • Year 1: Sweets and Chocolate

We would also be grateful for any donations of Teddies (for the Tombola) and cakes (please bring cakes on the day).

At the NSA we are always grateful for your continued support and we look forward to seeing you at the Christmas Bazaar on Friday 30th November 2018!
