Christmas has officially arrived at Winstanley College!
The last week of term saw a bundle of festive treats including Christmas jumper day in aid of Save the Children, a Santa dash, sing-a-long at the staff meeting and, the annual Winter Wonderland.
Student, Flora Jackson, organised Christmas jumper day as part of her extended project qualification, successfully securing raffle prizes of a Starbucks Hamper and Wigan Warrior tickets; she also arranged for Wish FM’s Chris Milow to draw the winners. A fantastic £700 was raised from the day.
The Winter Wonderland event unveiled a range of stalls, grottos, candy, festive cheer and even a bucking bronco Christmas pudding! All accompanied by college bands playing a selection of Christmas songs.
The event is all done in the name of charity and this year, along with Save the Children, charities included The Salvation Army, The Brick and Madagascan Wells.
Pupils from Hope School in Wigan also attended, selling their homemade Christmas goodies.
Louise Tipping, College principal said: “A big ‘well done’ to everyone who helped out and supported the events, we are certainly feeling festive and ready for the Christmas hols!”
