Thank you to all the families who took part in Operation Christmas Child. Operation Christmas Child is one of the charities we support as part of our termly ‘Love Projects.’ Operation Christmas Child is a project of Samaritan’s Purse, a Christian international relief organisation. Through Operation Christmas Child, Samaritan’s Purse aims to provide children affected by war, poverty, natural disaster or famine with shoeboxes filled with small toys, hygiene items, and school supplies.
As a school we managed to collect 75 boxes, with a particular special thanks to Olivia in Year 1, who brought in four boxes alone! These boxes were blessed at the 10am service in Christ Church on the 21st November before they started their journey to reach deserving children around the world.
