“Operation Christmas Child” distributes shoe boxes filled with gifts to disadvantaged children worldwide and our students love supporting this great cause and this is a great way to encourage our children to think of others. Christmas is a wonderful time, and your family can share that joy with others!
If you would like to put a box together with your child, it is good to include something to love, something to play with, something for school, something for personal hygiene and something to wear. We are also asking that a $10 donation be placed in an envelope in each box to assist with the freight and postal costs.
Families who donate the freight cost online are able to obtain a tracking number for their box at www.samaritanspurse.org.au. This will enable them to see where their box has been sent. Boxes need to be returned to classrooms by Friday 27 October.
