Jenyns School Christmas Cracker

An FOJ elf has been busy counting the money taken at the Christmas Cracker, and we are so very pleased to announce that we made over £1450 profit! This is a fantastic amount and will go a long way to paying for the forthcoming panto the children are going to on the 4th December as well as all the supplies which the children turned into the most glittery of decorations on the Glitter Afternoon – a lot of which are covering the Christmas tree in the hall!

Fancy coming to our meetings:


Thursday 9th November, 8pm, school library
Monday 20th November, 9.30am, venue TBC
Thursday 7th December, 8pm, school library.
