Lessons in Giving at St Mark’s C of E Primary School, Hadlow Down

Children from Cocoons Class at St Mark’s C of E Primary School in Hadlow Down, have been learning valuable lessons other than maths and English this December.

They have chosen to spread some Christmas cheer and goodwill by way of a ‘Reverse Advent Calendar’.

Every school day during advent, the children have taken it in turns to pull names from the advent calendar and those named have donated items for the local food bank.

They have enjoyed giving rather than receiving and feel it has taught them a valuable lesson in thinking of others at Christmas time.
