Operation Christmas Child Update

Recently, we had some special visitors come to tell us about Operation Christmas Child. You can read about that here.

Most of the students in 2KM and 2KJ have been busy collecting some special items to fill up our shoeboxes for less fortunate children overseas.

Some of the things we donated were small toys, soaps, pencils, shoes, clothing, toothbrushes and books.

We also wrote a letter for the boxes to tell the child all about our class.

2KM and 2KJ filled up seven shoeboxes.

Mrs Morris and Miss Jordan paid for the postage online so we could get a special tracking code. This tracking code will let us find out where the boxes go! It will be fun to follow our shoeboxes.

Here is Ella, Leo and Hamish with our shoeboxes that are all ready to be sent off.

What did you donate?

How does it feel to give something to someone else?

What special things do you do at Christmas time?

How many days are there until Christmas?

  1. Dear 2KM and 2KJ,

    Great post Mrs Morris!

    I did not get to donate anything to the children overseas because I’ve been away, I really did want to though.

    I think there is 58 day until Christmas day, I didn’t cheat because I looked on the calendar.

    I realised Mrs Morris did the questions in Christmas colours.

    Again, great post. 😯

    Lots Of Love,

    Haille

  2. Dear 2KM and 2KJ,

    I can just imagine the excitement in packing special items in shoe boxes to be sent overseas. I know how many of you would be excited to receive such surprise gifts so you may have an idea how much joy you’ll bring to others.

    Keep up your project. You’re going to bring smiles to your global classroom.

  3. Dear 2KM and 2KJ,

    Wow what an outstanding job you all did to get your shoe boxes already and sent off.
    Well done!

    Nothing bets the joy of giving and that must make you feel so good. Just think you are going to make a childs day when he/she opens the shoe box and sees all the wonderful gifts. 🙂

    Well done everyone.

    • @ Locky,

      It is nice to hear from our old student! I hope grade four is going well.

      Have you asked Mrs Moreno or Ms Nolen to set up a blog for you? That would be the best place to start.

      Let us know how you go,

    • @ Connor,

      Thanks for your comment.

      I really appreciate your “happy birthday”. My birthday isn’t until November 6th so we better not start celebrating too soon 😉

      You don’t have to get me a present but I did love your little rhyme.

      Have a great weekend,

      Mrs M☀rris

  6. My name is Athena and I am 7 years old. I live in the Basque Country which is in Northern Spain, but I was born in New York. I’m learning English, so my mom is helping me translate what I want to write because she speaks English. My mom and I put together a bag full of clothes and shoes that are going to be sent to Cuba later this month. It is the second time I’m donating to Cuba this year. Because I grow so fast, my clothes and shoes stay new so we send them to kids whose parents can’t afford clothes. I go to my grandmother´s house on Christmas where we try to get our whole family together. There are 40 days left until Christmas, I counted in the calendar.
