Kind-hearted pupils’ Christmas spirit
Pupils at Cathkin High have fundraised for a local cause to fill everyone in the school with some much-needed Christmas spirit.
Jordan Thompson, Louis Mossom and Lorri Morrison of the Burns House, donated 200 hand wrapped gifts to the Salvation Army earlier this month.
Mrs Connelly, the pupil support teacher of Burns House, contacted the Salvation Army who were delighted to have Cathkin High School pupils on board for their annual Christmas event.
The charity identify local children who have been affected in the past year through bereavement, separation, loss of income, come from a low income family or who may struggle with buying Christmas gifts.
The Salvation Army ask for donations of gifts for the children, ranging in price from £1 to any limit, to be delivered to their houses in time for Christmas day.
Mrs Connelly said:“The Burns House captains were behind this event completely from the word go.
“They wanted to ensure that no one was forgotten about on Christmas morning and that everyone would enjoy the excitement and cheer of Christmas spirit.”
Major Watkins, from the Salvation Army, visited Cathkin High School on December 4 to collect the donations .
