Halcyon Family Showcase -

On the 15th of December for the Halcyon family show case, I (Allegra) am going to have a stand where you sign cards. These cards will be sent to America. Why they are going to America is because there is a girl called Anndie Lynn. She has cerebral atrophy. This will be her last Christmas and her parents wish for lots of people to send her Christmas cards so that it would be the best last Christmas.

So please right a note on the cards and make this Anndie Lynn best Christmas.

The Hall will be closed on Wednesday 10 December. Arrangements for lunchtime activities are as follows:

- 30 students can sign up for Park (please sign up with Emily at reception)
