St Catherine’s Hospice Santa Dash & Christmas Jumper Non-uniform Day - Wednesday 8th December 2021
The children at Lostock Hall Community Primary School will be taking part in a ‘Santa Dash’ on Wednesday 8th December which is also Christmas Jumper and Christmas Dinner Day. Pupils will dash around the KS1 or KS2 playgrounds at different points during the day, with the aim to raise both funds and awareness for the fantastic St Catherine’s Hospice.
We are fortunate to have been able to raise funds for St Catherine’s Hospice in the past and we are hoping to continue this trend during the festive period. In addition to our growing support of St Catherine’s Hospice, our new school sports kit adorns the hospice’s logo. For more information about the wonderful work that they do, please see www.stcatherines.co.uk
On the day, children will be able to attend school in non-uniform and we are encouraging pupils to wear their Christmas jumpers. Pupils will also be provided with a Santa hat for the occasion. It is important that children wear suitable footwear for the ‘dash’ so trainers would be advised.
In order to raise much needed funds for the hospice, we are kindly asking for a charitable donation of your choice on the day. School has funded the cost of Santa hats for the event, so anything donated above this will go towards making this event a fundraising success for St. Catherine’s.
Christmas Dinner - Wednesday 8th December 2021
A Christmas dinner will also be served on Wednesday 8th December 2021 in place of the normal school lunch menu. The kitchen will be serving roast turkey with chipolata sausage or roast Quorn fillet, served with sage and onion stuffing, roast and creamy mashed potatoes and seasonal vegetables. The cost for the Christmas lunch is £2.35 per child for KS2 children, but no charge for children in EYFS/KS1 or those who are entitled to free school meals. Pupils will order as normal in the morning.
As usual we will be holding Christmas Parties for the children during the school day on the following dates:
All children should come to school in their party outfits on the morning of their party day. Please ensure that clothes are comfortable and warm as the children will be having lessons and playtime as normal in the morning.
The school kitchen will be organising Christmas party food for the children, in place of the normal lunch menu. The cost for the party lunch is £2.35 per child for KS2 children, but no charge for children in EYFS/KS1 or those who are entitled to free school meals. Pupils will order as normal in the morning. The party food will consist of: Sandwich, Tortilla Chips, Salad, Sausage Roll, Jelly, Ice Cream and a Biscuit. Children not opting for the party food may bring a packed lunch to eat at the party.
