Since the beginning of term 3, the year 9 girls have taken part in Operation Christmas Child for Samaritan’s Purse during PC (Pastoral Care).
Our first job was deciding how we would get the rest of the high school involved and the girls made a number of posters and went around to the different PC groups. They also very generously made a number of baked goods which they sold in a bake sale, taking the initiative to run this by themselves. With the money, we were able to buy a number of items to go into the shoeboxes which we wrapped in sparkly red, silver and gold paper during PC. It has been wonderful to see how generous they have been with their time and their enthusiasm in wrapping and putting the boxes together and writing notes to the children these boxes will go to.
Thank you to those of you who have also donated items to this cause.
