Operation Christmas Child

Attached below is a letter that will be sent home with your child this afternoon.

23rd August 2016

Dear Parents,

It is the time of year when we ask for the  support of the OLC community to help children in need by providing items that can be packaged in shoeboxes and sent to those in need.

The shoeboxes our school helps to send may be the only gift that the child receives all year and they are very gratefully received!

This year we will have a combined effort between the Year 4, 5 and 6 classrooms to donate items that can be used to package the boxes.

In Year 5 all students will provide 2 items for the shoebox and $2.50 to pay for the postage of the boxes.

SOMETHING TO PLAY WITH Tennis ball, cars, skipping rope, marbles, musical instrument, yo-yo, slinky, finger puppets, wind up torch, etc.

SOMETHING TO WEAR T-shirt, polo, shirt, shorts, skirt, cap, beanie, sandals, etc.

Your child will be given the age of the student to bring in appropriate items for. Boys will buy for boys and girls will buy for girls.

These items will be centrally collected and then we will pack the shoeboxes once all items are in.

Please make sure that you have brought your items and money in by Monday 12th September.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Kindest regards,

Ben Danaher
