As a faith school we are constantly thinking about how we put the teachings of Jesus into action and how to be a good neighbour. This Christmas we would like to support the work of Samaritan Purse and the Operation Christmas Child Shoe Box Appeal. Please think about donating a small, new gift which a child in need may like to receive this Christmas. It must be small enough to fit inside a shoe box and could be something to love, something to play with, something to keep you clean, something to help you learn or something to keep you warm(hat, scarf or gloves) Please visit https://www.samaritans-purse.org.uk/what-we-do/operation-christmas-child/how-to-pack-a-shoebox/ to find clear details about suitable items to send. Each class hopes to fill several boxes and gifts can be brought into school and placed in the class box from Monday 17th October until Wednesday 2nd November. Thank you for helping us to think of others, especially at Christmas.
Please have something Christmassy ready to put gifts in from Monday and encourage the children to support the work of Samaritans Purse. As gifts come in you may need to prompt the children with some ideas so that you have a balanced box ie nobody wants to receive 15 toothbrushes! You may wish to choose which age range you’d like to collect for and boy or girl.
Please gather your gifts and we may even do some sharing or swapping amongst classes after half term.
Thank you and Happy Christmas!
