POLAM Hall pupils are continuing with a festive tradition that has been going on at the school since 1901.

Every year Polam Hall encourages junior school pupils to choose toys which have outgrown, bring them to school and place them under the school Christmas Tree as oferings for the school toy appeal.

Father Ian Grieves, from St.James the Great Church, Albert Hill, comes to the school and collects the toys.

The church makes sure that they are given to those families who do not have enough money to buy presents themselves
