A Christmas feast was enjoyed by all at St John’s Church school, Wellington on Thursday 8th December. Thanks to the efforts of the kitchen staff at St John’s, a Christmas dinner with all the trimmings was made for all children and staff. Once again, the school provided this meal for free to ensure everyone got to enjoy a cooked Christmas lunch at least once this year. This was all made possible thanks to our local butcher, Tim Potter, who provided all of the meat for the school free of charge. Without this help, with the current cost of living, the school would have struggled to provide this service for free.
It was a thoroughly enjoyable lunch, where children and staff ate together, enjoying Christmas crackers and festive music while eating lots of delicious food and pudding!
This is such a tradition at St John’s to have a Christmas dinner and we are so grateful for the support from Tim Potter, as like many, it would have been a challenge to do this for free for the whole school. It is such a wonderful thing for our community to be involved with and follows our school ethos of sharing joy and hope within school and our community.
