The children in each class received a visit from one of the Team Hope volunteers for the Christmas Shoebox appeal that we are taking part in this year. Jenny went through with the children what was acceptable to put in the boxes and different ideas of items to put in. She told lots of interesting stories about who receives the Christmas boxes and what its like for them. Overall it was a great talk and it was very good for the children to see and hear about underprivileged children in other countries and how by making a small gesture can make a big difference to another child’s life.
Thank you to Jenny for dropping in to Scoil San Eoin
Reminder to all parents: Leaflets have went home with the children for the shoebox appeal which show what you have to do. All boxes will be collected Friday 09th Nov from SSE.
