With Christmas celebrations and present exchanging going to be in full swing next week I just wanted to take the opportunity to remind parents/carers and students that both XP and XPEast are nut-free schools. We have students from both schools that have severe nut allergies. Please ensure your child remembers that products containing nuts cannot be eaten anywhere on the school site, packed lunches should also be nut free within school.
How we XP- a stunning Christmas tree created by the 250 XP students IN JUST ONE DAY! Students made a selfless wish for someone else this Christmas, near or far, some of those people they’ve never even met. Stunning wishes ranged from kindness to our planet, to kindness to relatives in hospital…politicians were even shown some kindness (can you imagine)! XP, above all, prides itself on its compassion. You might call it the ‘butterfly effect’- a single butterfly beats its wings and it creates a magnificent ripple, or product in this case.
We’d love you to support our Christmas campaign this year, by bringing in gifts for the Balby Food Bank, which has been especially affected by Doncaster’s recent floods. Foodbanks always need the essentials, but treats at this time of year make the world of difference. Selection boxes, chocolate, new socks, kids gloves- all would be greatly appreciated!
Last week Crew Bronte researched and chanted some traditional skipping rhymes, and were transported back to their childhood. The results were both hilarious and quite remarkable (see how high Ben is jumping). Jump to it Crew!
This morning in Crew we all had breakfast together. Each student had different roles such as making toast,taking orders, making cups of tea or hot chocolate and finding news topics to discuss.
Every single student did a fantastic job fulfilling their role. We had a lovely start to the day 😁
We had a fantastic morning last Friday performing for the shoppers at Lakeside Village Shopping Centre. It was a great opportunity to get some performance experience in public and we raised a massive £65 in just two hours. This will go towards hoodies for the group as well as buying children’s toys for Sheffield Children’s Hospital.
We will be back on the 20th December to continue our fund-raising!
Students from both Admiral and Skipper will be presenting this terms learning to parents on 9th December. This will consist of two parts that link the final question of “Why should world poverty matter to us in Doncaster?”, We hope to see all X24 parents here to support such an awesome cause.
As an adjustment to the above, X24 Admiral will be presenting at XP East and X24 Skipper will be presenting at XP
