We are currently collecting Christmas shoeboxes for children in Albania. The shoeboxes have been filled by the children, parents and local community and contain hats, scarves, toys, sweets, colouring pencils and much more. This a wonderful chance for the children in our school to think of those not so fortunate around Christmas and there has been a great response throughout the shool. They will be delivered by the Heart to Hand charity who do a lot of great work in poorer countries. You can find out more about the charity here http://www.hearttohand.net/index.html.
This picture shows some of our Junior Infants bringing their showboxes to the office.
