The glorious sunshine has certainly given us all a jaunty and spritely spring in our step this week. It has been wonderful to see the boys playing across the years on the lawn and climbing frame, and taking risks climbing trees at break time.
Thank you to all for their support of this year's charity work. Whilst individual sections and year groups have their own local charity in mind, our international focus is on Aid for Ukraine refugees.
We are specifically asking in addition this week for Thermos Flasks and warm adult boot socks, to help those without power and heat stay warm.
The United Reform Church will be at Senior Boys every day for the next week so that new products can be brought into school and dropped to them directly. Their next lorry is going to help people who are resettling so the list is different.

New women's underwear S M L XL
New children's underwear 7-8, 8-9, 10-11, 12-13, 13-14
