Operation Christmas Child is the world’s largest children’s Christmas project. Mrs Prior encourages pupils every year to think about needy children around the world and support the Samaritan’s purse appeal. They are asked to fill a shoebox with gifts to allow children to experience some joy at Christmas.
Mrs Prior was overjoyed with the generosity of our pupils in donating enough goods to fill 47 shoeboxes! A house competition takes place every year, with the pupils competing in house groups to donate the most boxes.
This year the results were as follows:
Margaret house: 18 boxes
Francis house: 10 boxes
Teresa house: 11 boxes
Vincent house: 8 boxes
A huge congratulations to 11 Margaret, donating 7 boxes in total, the most boxes donated by one form group.
