Christmas Shoebox Appeal 2014

Leave a comment

33In assembly yesterday, Mr Peace spoke to the children about Operation Christmas Child – also known as the Christmas Shoebox Appeal.

If your son/daughter wishes to take part this year, they will need to find and wrap (in Christmas paper) a medium-sized shoebox and lid (wrapped separately) then fill it with new gifts from the following list:

STATIONERY: pens, pencils, sharpener, crayons, stamp and ink pad set, writing pad, solar calculator, small colouring book etc

TOYS: small car, ball, doll, stuffed animal, puppet, small musical instrument (e.g. kazoo or harmonica), skipping rope etc

TOILETRIES: toothbrush, toothpaste, mild bar of soap (in a plastic bag), comb, hairbrush, flannel etc

OTHER: t-shirt, socks, cap, sunglasses, hair clips, toy jewellery, watch, small torch (with batteries) etc

PLEASE DO NOT INCLUDE: used or damaged items, war-related items (e.g. toy knives, guns or military figures), chocolate, sweets, liquids or lotions, medication or vitamins, breakable items (e.g. snow globes or glass containers) and aerosol cans.

You will need to decide the age and gender of the recipient of your shoebox. When your son/daughter returns the box to school, their form tutor will give them a label to tick and stick on the box (as above).

A £3 donation (in an envelope) should accompany the shoebox and all shoeboxes must be returned by Friday 7th November.

Thank you!Screen Shot 2014-10-17 at 9.42.00 am
