Please keep our school and community safe - do not send your child to school if they display any symptoms of Coronavirus, please do call school on 0151 525 9776 for further advice if you are unsure and we will be happy to help. Government guidance states, if you have any symptoms of Covid 19 - cough, high temperature or loss of taste or smell - you must produce a negative PCR test, before your child can return to school. Lateral flow tests are for non-symptomatic cases only. Thank you for your continued support.

Operation Christmas Child

It’s shoebox time!
 
Operation Christmas Child is the world’s largest children’s Christmas project – sending gift-filled shoeboxes to children in need around the world since 1990.
 
Right now, thousands of schoolchildren from across the UK are busy wrapping, packing and filling shoeboxes with great little gifts for children in need overseas.
 
What’s more, these shoeboxes provide a special connection between two children in the world – transcending boundaries of culture, nationality, and geography; bridging a gap between a child who has something to give, and a child who can’t wait to receive it.
 
Getting involved
The deadline for receiving shoeboxes is November 18th. Doing a shoebox is as easy as 1-2-3:
 
1.       Get hold of an empty shoebox, wrapping paper and little gifts – and make-up your shoebox, including the boy/girl label on the lid
2.       Visit www.operationchristmaschild.org.uk to make your £2.50 shipping donation online
3.       Take your shoebox into school, where it will be collected on/around November 18.
 
That’s your shoebox taken care, but that isn’t the end!
 
  • You can take a photo of yourself and your shoebox and upload it onto our giant mosaic.
  • You can watch a live webcast of shoeboxes being distributed to children in early December.
  • You can look out for your Thank You email with details of which country your shoebox was sent to.
 
To find out more about these opportunities – and to read inspiring stories of children receiving shoeboxes – please www.operationchristmaschild.org.uk.
 

*Parents could you please have your shoeboxes in by the 14th November. Thank you.
