The school community at Robert Gordon’s College have been gathering donations towards Cash for Kids Mission Christmas Appeal which helps ensure disadvantaged children have a gift to open at Christmas.
Bringing the presents into school Mrs Main and Mrs Rose organised a Junior School House Christmas Movie Night in MacRobert Hall on 17 December for P4 and P5 pupils who will then get to see the amount of gifts being donated. The children have been voting for their film of choice but were absolutely ecstatic when Northsound One presenter Jeff Diack popped by to tell them more about the appeal and announce the winning film, The Grinch (2018).
Mrs Rose said: “This is the second year that our Junior School House system has supported a local Christmas Gift appeal as we are so proud of and humbled by the overwhelming generosity of our pupils and staff. Last year it took three jam packed cars to remove our donations from the school campus and it's looking like we might need a truck this year! We truly can't thank everyone enough!”
Mrs Main said: “As the festive season begins, it is so important that we think of those less fortunate than ourselves and our RGC Community always humbles us with its generosity and kindness and this year is no different. 'Mission Christmas' is a huge appeal that we at Robert Gordon's College have contributed to on a grand scale. The mission is for each and every child in our City and surrounding areas to have a gift to open on Christmas morning and we are thrilled that we could try to help to achieve this. After all, giving is the greatest gift.”
