Merry Christmas from Wishtrac

Christmas is coming!

I know it’s a bit early for Christmas but I also know that some of you like to get ahead of the game and plan well in advance. We are told that FREE is a great selling word so put FREE and Christmas together and it has to be a winner. Software supplier Wishtrac is offering a free advent calendar to all schools for use on their interactive whiteboards or computer.

The Advent Calendar comes complete with Christmas music and pupils can also find out about Christmas traditions, such as why we have Christmas trees, or why we pull crackers at Christmas time! It also contains links to non-Christian religious festivals which occur during December, such as Bodhi Day or Hannukah.

In the past two years, over 11,000 classes have downloaded the advent calendar. You can download The Advent Calendar free of charge by clicking here but in the true spirit of Christmas, Wishtrac is asking schools to donate to the charity Action for Children.
