Dear Families,

As you may already be aware, St Andrew’s charity  of the year Christmas appeal is raising money for No5.  This is a local mental health charity that provides free and confidential counselling support to young people across Reading.

Please do donate if you are able.

Dear families,

If you are stuck for a last minute Christmas gift idea, you may want to consider a mindfulness book to support your child’s emotional literacy.

Breathing Makes it Better: A book for sad days, mad days, glad days and all the feelings in between by Christopher Willard and Wendy O’Leary.

Or you can find other recommendations on the Book Trust website.

Best wishes,

Mrs Mullaney
