Blythswood Shoebox Appeal 2023
We are delighted to be taking part in the Blythswood Shoebox appeal this year. We had a lovely visit from Elma MacKay who showed us all a presentation on what happens when we give a Blythswood Shoebox at Christmas. We are asking for donations of empty shoe boxes, pre wrapped shoe boxes, items to add to the shoe boxes or fully wrapped and filled boxes – every little bit of help will make a huge difference. If all items could be in school by the end of the first week back after the October Holidays.
Eco Committee – planting & keeping the area tidy
Our Eco committee were busy planting new shrubs & trees in our woodland area around the pond. They are also great at keeping the school grounds tidy, taking part in lots of litter picking.

The money will also be used to pay for the set up and daily use of breakfast club that we have started. We really are so grateful to DCT for this money.
