Lots of shoeboxes filled for Operation Christmas Child
Around 130 shoeboxes have been filled by CBA students ready to be sent off to disadvantaged children in time for Christmas.
Each tutor group in every year group was asked to fill at least two shoeboxes for the school’s Operation Christmas Child appeal.
The finished shoeboxes, which have each been filled with items for a boy of girl, were all collected in last week and will be sent off go to disadvantaged children in Africa, Eastern Europe and Central Asia.
The tutor group in Key Stage 3 which filled the most shoeboxes was Claire Howsam’s tutor group 8S. Students in 8S filled around 15 shoeboxes in total and will be given prizes for their efforts.
Miss Howsam said: “I’m exceptionally proud of the generosity they have shown towards children less fortunate than themselves this Christmas.”
The tutor group in Key Stage 4 which filled the most shoeboxes was Miss Clark’s tutor group in the DSP, who filled 12 shoeboxes and will also receive prizes.
CBA’s Operation Christmas Child appeal has been organised by the Sixth Form Charity Committee.
Head girl Ellie Mae Moore said: “We were aiming for around 50 shoeboxes so it was brilliant to get up to around 130. Everyone really got into the spirit of the appeal and did a really good job with their shoeboxes.”
