Christmas giving at TPS ..

Christmas is a time for giving and at TPS this week the children have chosen some wonderful presents to give from the 
World Vision Christmas site!

Each year, KS1 & KS2 take part in sponsored 1km & 2km runs raising funds to support Sweety in Bangladesh and Richard in Rwanda, our World Vision sponsor children.

Their efforts, and your generosity, has meant we have been left with a surplus of funds we are spending this Christmas!

In each class, the children have taken time to consider what type of gifts would make the best and most useful presents. Even our youngest took time to understand the needs of others less fortunate than themselves and how these gifts would make lives better.

If you would like to see more of their list of possible choices go to

At today's assembly, the list below was read out to show the whole school the impressively thoughtful list of gifts that will be going to unknown families around the world this Christmas.
