This year, the school will be collecting present-filled shoeboxes to send to less fortunate children throughout the world. Many of these children will be from very poor or war-torn backgrounds and this will be the only gift they are given this year.
Mr Shepherd and Kinder will be organising the collections from form tutors. The appeal was mentioned in assembly , which gave an introduction to the kind of things to consider including (and not including). A leaflet will be sent home this week so that families have half term to organise their boxes.
