Jolly Jam Jars

We are collecting Jolly Jam Jars this year to sell at the fair, they are like a cross between a lucky dip and a Tombola except that every jar is a winner! We want to make sure there are enough for all kids who want one, so please help with this if you can. Find out how to make and fill a Jolly Jam Jar here >> https://bruntsfield.org/wp-content/uploads/sites/21/2023/11/jolly-jam-jars.pdf  

Jolly Jam Jars can be dropped off on Fri 10 Nov, Weds 15 Nov, Fri 17 Nov and Weds 22 Nov during morning drop off (8:45 – 9am). Drop off point is the blue benches next to the main school entrance. Or you can drop them at school from 10am on the day of the Fair.
