The national event for Save the Children charity took place on December 14th and people at Pool Academy were keen to Join in.

A teacher at Pool Academy who organised the event also held a best Christmas jumper competition.

Tina Rowe, from the admin team, was the winner after spending time on making a Christmas tree jumper from scratch.

She used a plain top and added on the tree and then attached real baubles. She said her family were so impressed with her efforts they all want to have a go next year.

Pool Academy’s Vice Principal Lisette Neesham, said: “Tina made a brilliant effort and her jumper was spectacular. It was wonderful seeing people wearing their jumpers on Friday and seeing them all looking Christmassy.

“Everyone who wore a festive-themed jumper donated £1 to the charity Save the Children and we raised more than £100.”

Mrs Neesham added she wanted to remind parents and students of the Foodbank collection point in the school’s main reception. All donations will be taken to CPR Foodbank headquarters on the last day of term ready to distribute over the festive period.
