Here is an opportunity to teach your children about giving to those less fortunate.
We invite you to do this shared experience with your child(ren) selecting things to go in a Christmas box that will be delivered to children in the South West who would not otherwise get gifts at Christmas time.
We have had a wonderful response from our families for the last two years. It has made Christmas so special for kids in our own backyard who would normally go without.
This is a voluntary program for interested families throughout the school.
What you Do:-
- Buy a box about the size of a shoe box from stores such as Red Dot
This is part of the gift.
- Select the age and sex to buy for.
Girl or Boy: Age from 2 years up to 16+years
- Fill the box with goodies from the 6 SOMETHINGS listed below.
Let your children fill the box with Christmas surprises for WA children who are less fortunate.
Do not seal the box. Ribbon is fine though.
The 6 something’s: They must be brand new!

e.g. soft cuddly toy, doll, or teddy
