This year we will again be taking part in Operation Christmas Child. This is an opportunity to cover a shoebox with wrapping paper and put small gifts inside for a child who otherwise wouldn’t get a Christmas present. The box should be for a boy or girl aged either 2-4 years, 5-9 years or 10-14 years. Items not to include are used or damaged items, war related items, chocolate, medicines, sharp objects, glass containers, mirrors or fragile items. We shall be sending a leaflet home next week and, if you wish to start packing a shoebox gift with your child over half term, they can be sent into school after the half term break.
