Operation Christmas Child - Due Date Extended!
Families can still participate in the 'Operation Christmas Child' campaign by purchasing and filling a box, donating items towards a box, and or a monetary donation that would be used towards postage.
The document ‘How to Pack a Shoebox’ is a great reference when packing your shoebox. This document is in the pack you will receive when you purchase a shoebox. Donations will be collected until Friday, 14th October. Shoeboxes can be purchased at the Student Office for 50 cents. All donations can be brought to your child’s Homeroom. When postage is paid for online, you can also track your box.
Please do not wrap boxes with Christmas paper as all boxes will be opened and checked when they are transported to the warehouse in Melbourne.
Each year our goal is to donate more boxes than the previous year, therefore, our goal is to donate 167 boxes in 2017!
