26th November 2021 — The calendar project began when the second lockdown started in January of this year. The idea was to get the Junior Boys safely outdoors and appreciating the natural world on their doorstep, rather than dwelling on not being able to travel as normal or take part in their usual array of out-of-school activities. Each month, every boy was encouraged to submit the seasonal photographs he had taken and winners were selected by guest judges. The cost of printing has been covered by the generous sponsors featured in the calendar, so 100% of the money raised through sales of the calendar will go to local charity Urban Outreach.

Junior Boys’ teacher Mrs Winstanley said: ‘The enthusiasm for this project and the quality of the submissions has been outstanding and the final product reflects this. The calendar is certainly worthy of a place on any study or kitchen wall!

‘Thank you to everyone who has continued to support this project throughout the year as photographer, supportive parent, judge or sponsor. Your contribution has been enormous and is much appreciated. I think you will be impressed and pleased with the final product.’

Calendars are priced at £10 each with all proceeds going to Urban Outreach.

Orders can be placed online via Shopfront. When placing your order, please enter CALENDAR and the quantity required into the ‘Reason for Payment’ box and include your son’s name and form in the ‘Invoice Ref’ box (if applicable). If you wish to make an additional, voluntary contribution to Urban Outreach to support their vital work in the local community during the winter months, please add this to the amount you pay.

Please note: shipping is not available and calendars must be collected from the Junior Boys’ School. Calendars are available for collection before the Christmas holidays (beginning Friday 17 December 2021).
