The Christmas season brings with it a lot of joy and happiness, however for some it simply brings financial hardship and loneliness. Reach out to someone in need this Christmas. There are many charities that seek additional support at this time of year. Please give generously.

This year, our school is collecting items for three local charity groups...

  • St Vincent dePaul - Christmas Hamper items (Years 1, 4 & 6) - toys, games, Christmas pudding, long life custard, chocolates, lollies, bon bons, fruit mince pies, shortbread, Christmas cake, cracker biscuits, tea, coffee, milo, jelly crystals, deoderant, socks, soap, books etc. (for children and adults)
  • Stella Maris - Seafarers Shoebox Appeal (Years 3 & 5) - gift items for men that will fit in a shoebox gift pack... such as: soap, shampoo, deoderant, sunscreen, toothpaste, toothbrushes, razors, magazines, socks, chocolates etc.
