S3 PDA Winter Appeal

It is that time of year again when our S3 PDA class will be very busy collecting items to deliver to our local community at Christmas. Students are looking for our whole school community to get together and –

  • Donate a coat, hat or scarf appeal – box at SSA desk (oval desk on ground floor)
  • Senior citizen Christmas hamper – food donations to be taken to PSE rooms from Monday 19 November – Friday 14 December
  • Homeless Christmas boxes – soap, toothpaste, tooth brush, wet wipes, combs, facecloth, sweets/biscuits etc – bring donations to FO37 in Pupil Support

We really appreciate all the support you give our PDA students throughout the year. If you can donate something to our appeal, no matter how small, that would be wonderful. Students can bring items in to school. The S3 PDA class will be delivering the parcels on Monday 17 December.

Thank you,
Yvonne McGregor, Pupil Support Officer and PDA Coordinator
