The Friends of Temple Sowerby School have come up with the wonderful idea of a Reverse Advent Calendar. This is to teach the children the importance of giving to others who maybe aren't as fortunate. If you would like to take part, then please put your name on one of the baubles on the Christmas tree, which is just outside the office.
