Shoebox Christmas

This year in Ms Kelly’s Year 9 English class, students in 908 learnt about ideas around friendship, showing kindness, and respecting others through text studies of ‘Wonder’ written by R.J. Palacio and ‘A Monster Calls’ written by Patrick Ness.  Building on these ideas some students volunteered to take part in a ‘Shoebox Christmas’ which is a charity organisation that gives Christmas gifts to kids in New Zealand that are less fortunate and may not receive anything at Christmas.  We signed up to donate four Christmas gifts and once we knew a little bit about the intended recipients we worked in groups to put together our shoeboxes of presents.  We hope the children who receive them enjoy their gifts and we wish everyone a safe and happy holidays.
