23 November 2006 ~ Operation Christmas Child


Mr Bristow joined again to receive the boxes we had prepared.  
These boxes would go to other countries to bring happiness 
to a child that would otherwise have nothing.  
First Mrs Davonport showed us a DVD about Operation Christmas Child 
and the children who had been helped in previous years.

Then, class by class, starting with Year 3

we brought out the boxes 
we had prepared.

We had been asked to prepare 
two for each class, one for a boy 
and one for a girl

but we had enough for fifty boxes! 
We didn't want any child to go without 
if we could do something about it.

At the end of our assembly some of us gathered round the boxes 
as we all said some prayers for the children who would receive the gifts: 
children we would never know, but who, by the boxes we send 
and the prayers we said, would be helped just a little to have a better life.
