A huge thank you to everyone who sent in items for the Shoebox Appeal. We filled an amazing 100 boxes which will go to people who would otherwise have had no gifts for Christmas. David, from the Rotary, came to pick the boxes up last week. He also wished to pass on thanks from the Rotary and to let everyone know what a huge difference this will make to the lives of those who have less than we do. This was a great learning experience for the pupils from shopping for items, collecting and sorting the items donated, decorating and packing the boxes. But the lesson of giving to others was the most important thing achieved.
From all the Howes Hoose Staff and pupils
