Children, parents, staff & Governors at Our Lady & St Kenelm in Halesowen get on board with Operation Christmas Child.
Over the last few weeks, children have been wrapping shoe boxes and filling them full of goodies to bring joy to another child on Christmas morning!
The children decided that they wanted to get involved after Mrs Finnegan showed them a video of children from all over the world, waking up on Christmas morning with no gifts to open!
The children were really distressed at this thought, so as the Mini Vinnies motto states; ‘Turning concern into Action’ the children took control and 86 boxes were gift wrapped & sent into school, ready for collection!
The children’s sadness soon turned to joy at the thought of another child, who is less fortunate than they are, will receive a gift on Christmas morning!
Mrs Finnegan thanked all the staff, parents, Governors and especially the children, for living out the schools Mission Statement ‘Bringing out the best in everyone, for the benefit of all, in the Spirit of Christ,’ especially at this time of the year, when all the children have started their rehearsals for the Nativity & singing carols, ready to celebrate the birth of Jesus.
Thank you again for your support & generosity!
