Help your local secondary

The SAINSBURY Active Kids voucher scheme has started, and Tesco for Schools and Clubs 2012 voucher scheme starts next week.

Montrose Academy is collecting both sets of vouchers to provide extra equipment across the curriculum.

Last year 19,000 vouchers were collected from Tesco and it is hoped to exceed that this year.

They were traded for sports equipment, art and craft materials and first aid kits as well as many other valuable additions to the school’s resources.

If you shop at Tesco or Sainsbury’s the school urges you to collect the vouchers and donate them. Collection boxes are available in the school’s reception area.

There is a competition within the school for the form class which collects the most vouchers.

You can help your daughter/son to be a winner by giving vouchers directly to them.
