It's that time of year again in Sacred Heart of Mary Girls' School! We have had our visit from Samaritan's Purse and it is now all go on organising, purchasing and packaging our shoeboxes.
Deadline: Friday 22nd November 2013
How To Pack Your Shoebox (Watch VeggieTales guide)
All gifts should be new, please include items from each category.
Y7 to 10 will have an RE lesson dedicated to making a shoebox with their friends. Y12 and 13 will have a General RE lesson putting their 'Faith in Action' and making a shoebox with their form.
What I did...
I went on to eBay and searched for 'party bag fillers' and hundreds of ideas came up! For just £21, I purchased the following:
- 50 bouncy balls
- 12 maracas
- 20 colouring books
- 18 packs of crayons
- 20 packs of hair clips
- 10 toothbrushes
- 20 stretchy-man toys
- 12 bracelets
Who wants to share or swap?
Please also remember we need £3 to cover the transport cost for each:

Please please get involved this year and bring a smile to a child this Christmas
Each year in the UK alone, hundreds and thousands of people wrap and pack shoeboxes so that we can deliver them to children who may otherwise never receive a gift.
