Last night and this morning a group of us were working hard to pack up some final boxes ready for collection today. In total, as a school, we have managed to pack, fill and send 79 boxes as well as raising £140 to help towards shipping costs! I was overwhelmed with the amount of donations from our school community and would like to personally thank everyone involved. Our local organisers were also incredibly impressed with the efforts at Green Top and have asked me to pass one their special thanks.
Thank you for all your generous donations to date – we are still welcoming donations as our collection date has been extended to the 21st November 2019!
For more information see below or click here to visit the Operation Christmas Child‘s Website. If you would also wish to donate £1 towards the shipping of these boxes it will be very gratefully received.
Thank you to all who attended the service today, our Green Top children represented our school beautifully today to lay our wreath. Here are some lovely photos of the morning.
Next week is national anti-bullying week which we will be celebrating again this year as a school. Odd socks day – Show and express your true self and individuality on Tuesday 12th November 2019! The crazier the better, let’s all sparkle and shine together 🙂

The school council have been very involved in and enjoying their very own citizenship lessons so far…Here is what they have been up to.
It has been brought to my attention that there is a worrying video currently being shown at the end of YouTube videos which are aimed at children. Upon further investigation, this has been covered in the national news today also. The messages given out during these videos challenge children to do inappropriate and dangerous things but also not to tell an adult or ‘Momo’ -a scary looking character- will ‘get them’.
This is obviously a huge concern and we will be discussing e-safety tomorrow in our daily circles in all classes, however, please also safeguard your children when they are using YouTube and other social media apps by discussing actions to take if something pops up they are worried about or feel is inappropriate.
Further advice on how to restrict searches on YouTube can be found here
However, please be aware that some of the inappropriate messages have been embedded into child friendly videos in this case and therefore even safe searches may bring this concerning message up.
The School Council were very lucky to have a meeting with Amy from Doncaster Council who works with ‘Pupil Voice’ to try and get the children of our borough heard. We have all been asked to play a part in helping to make Doncaster a more child friendly borough!! How exciting.
