This year we had an amazing response to our ‘Operation Christmas Child’ appeal with 92 shoeboxes being filled to the brim with gifts for children living in poverty-stricken and war-affected places.
Every form group in Years 7, 8 and 9 was invited to take part with many embracing the challenge wholeheartedly, resulting in an outstanding effort. Thank you to all the parents and families who donated an item for the boxes or, indeed, an entire shoebox.
A huge thank you must also go to Year 7 for their bake sale and to all those who took part in the Mental Health Awareness Non-uniform day. Between them the students have raised the £460 needed to cover the cost of shipping the parcels to their destinations.
Pictured below are some of the students who took part in ‘Operation Christmas Child’ with the shoeboxes, packed, labelled and ready to go!
