Oakfield Academy responds to Operation Christmas Child appeal


PUPILS from Oakfield Academy put together ‘whole class’ as well as individual Christmas boxes in response to the annual Christmas Child appeal held by the Samaritan’s Purse charity.


Operation Christmas child is the world’s largest children’s Christmas project and aims to send boxes to underprivileged children to some of the poorest parts of the world.


Contributions for each box included a small toy, toiletries and educational supplies such as pencils and pencil sharpener.


Year 5 pupils all agreed and said, “It is good to help others, especially children who will receive few or no Christmas presents this year.”
