Little boxes full of surprises
EVERY second year the Dallarnil State School Project Club are keen to be part of the Christmas Child Shoe Box Appeal.
Students have been busy recently organising and collating items for the gift boxes that will be sent to a developing country in need of Samaritan Purse support.
School principal Andrea Kelly said the children also get inventive and cover the boxes in Christmas paper.
“The children are also putting together a special Christmas Shoe Box to send to Mesert,” she said.
“Mesert is our World Vision sponsored child in Ethopia in Africa.”
Year 6 student Catherine White enjoys collecting gift ideas for the boxes.
“Plus it’s fun shopping,” she said.
Fellow student Daniel Russell also agreed it was fun.
“Someone will gain some happiness this Christmas,” he said
Aneika Smith said we take small gifts for granted.
“But for them the shoebox will be amazing,” she said.
“A child in need will receive a wonderful surprise Christmas morning.”
