THE leading pack in our annual Shop for Schools contest are certainly making their point.
Well, 10,000 of them, to be exact.
Hartlepool’s Throston, Ward Jackson and St Aidan’s primary schools have all smashed through the 10,000-point barrier as part of our 2013 competition to reward your favourite schools and nurseries.
The idea behind Shop for Schools, run in association with the town’s Middleton Grange Shopping Centre, is simple.
Just take your receipts from Middleton Grange to the complex’s information desk.
There they will be stamped and returned to you complete with vouchers at the rate of one per pound spent in the centre. These can then be placed in individual letter boxes marked with the names of the 30 entrants.
Don’t worry if your school is not faring too well in today’s latest tables.
There are still plenty of ways of boosting your school or nursery’s total before the competition ends on June 22.
Spend more than 50p in the pound and your points total will be rounded up to an extra voucher. Double points are also on offer on Sundays and triple points on bank holiday Mondays.
The Mail will also be printing a series of bonus vouchers throughout the contest.
Nor will larger schools have an unfair advantage over smaller competitors.
Final points scores will be divided by school rolls to ensure size does not matter. But the more points your school or nursery gets then the better the prizes.
And there are triple points available if you pop into Middleton Grange this coming Bank Holiday Monday.
