Welcome to Braunton Academys Christmas List
We're really proud of the facilities our children and their teachers have at Braunton Academy. But we know our teachers are always trying to improve our childrens learning environment, and as parents and carers we want to help them do that.
Sadly the Department of Education is nowhere near as generous as Santa Claus (think Ebenezer instead) but we've checked with Santa and he reckons our teachers have all been nice this year, so we thought we'd try and make their Christmas wishes for our kids come true.
We asked each department to tell us what piece of kit or teaching aid would help make a difference in 2020 and below are the results. Some big, some small. Some easy to get, others much harder. If youre in a position to help buy something small, or you'd like to put money towards something bigger, that would be amazing.
We hope you don't mind us asking. Times are tight for lots of us, so dont feel any pressure at all. But if you can, and you'd like to, together we could all make a huge difference to our children (and their teachers).
So here's how this works:
Take a look at the wish list below.
Pick something you want to buy or contribute to.
If you'd like to, let us know in your comment what you'd like to buy (or you can do it anonymously if you prefer.)
We'll make sure your money is spent on what you've requested
Boom! Merry Christmas!
