Operation Christmas Child

OPERATION CHRISTMAS CHILD

This year Highfield is taking part in Operation Christmas Child for the charity Samaritan’s Purse. They aim to get Christmas presents to disadvantaged children in over 160 countries, who without their help, may not receive any gifts for Christmas.

Student council have given leaflets out to their year groups and children who wish to make a shoebox have taken one. The leaflet explains the project and also suggests items to include/not include in your shoebox. All items inside the shoeboxes must be of new quality, please. As a school we are aiming to try and get 100 boxes as it would be a wonderful feeling for all of us to know we had given so many children a wonderful, uplifting surprise at Christmas time.

We ask that you please send your boxes into school by Friday November 9th so that we can arrange for them to be collected by the charity.

If pupils have any questions at all ask them to come and see Mrs Moore in A2. As always we are incredibly grateful for your support.
