    I've had one card from a pupil. On the envelope it said Mr B..... (No Class) Can't say our kids are not astute.

    We have one of the charity wall charts. Instead of giving out cards, we write a message on the chart and put some dosh in the box.

    I have none from work. We finish on Friday after midday. However as I am not Christmas-Inclined I am not too bothered.

    I got one, seems the guy that gave me one (an LSA) has given every member of staff one (say 200) plus some to students as well. Oh I got it on 30th November too.

    As for presents, as a department, we got a box of celebrations via our Deputy Head. Always welcome, and greatfully received.

    A bottle of champagne from the chair of our PTA to thank me for my help has more than made up for the absence of anything else. The Pre-Schoolers did bring me a hand drawn card of a robin (well I think that's what it is!) today

    I never give cards at school - I make a donation to charity (Kent Air Ambulance this year) and put a poster in the staff room wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and saying which charity I've donated to.

    One of our TAs does a similar thing making a donation to Diabetes UK.
