Christmas Hampers December 2020
For many families, Christmas is just another stress on top of the daily challenges of living. The added expense of providing special things for their family can be overwhelmingly difficult and none of us would want to see other families without a decent meal and a present under the tree. For others, especially those who are alone, it might not seem that anyone cares and it's not worth making the effort.
Well at Dalton School we do care and it is because we care that we decided to raise funds to create Christmas Hampers alongside our local supermarket Morrisons.
Mother's Day Shop 2020
Dalton School is extremely lucky to keep close ties with past pupils - Robbie Cartwright is one of those pupils. Robbie is a Year 10 student who runs a small enterprise business of his own buying and selling trainers. Just before the end of Autumn Term 2, Robbie came into school and donated 22 pairs of trainers and/or football boots to some of our children. For some children it could not have come at a better time, as they had just signed up to the local football team - Dalton Dynamoes Football Club. The school would like to thank Robbie for his extremely kind generosity.

Santa came to visit children at Dalton School. Each child received a reading book as a Christmas gift.
