A Year 12 Home Group is spreading love to children who are less fortunate than themselves.
Miss Crafter’s 1202 class engaged in the ‘Shoeboxes of Love’ project this term, which contributes to the Samaritan’s Purse Australia’s Operation Christmas Child initiative.
The five boxes, which are packed full of treasures and personal letters, will be sent to Africa to improve the lives of underprivileged children by supplying them with items they would never normally have.
Year 12 students Dragana Jovanovic, Aleksandra Ivkovic, Daniel Maguire, Dylan Rout, Thomas Seraphin, Olivia Manolas, Jess Rahe, Caitlin Johnstone, Rhiannon McCann and Kobe Hill all got involved.
“The class worked extremely well in small teams to produce these wonderful boxes,” explained Miss Crafter. “The project helped our students understand from a global perspective just how lucky we are in relation to other countries who suffer for a variety of reasons.
“Without stigma of race, colour or religion, Operation Christmas Child breaks down these walls and students develop an understanding and empathy for those less fortunate, as well as a greater appreciation for what they have themselves.”
Humanities and LOTE Coordinator Miss Horskins initiated the project at SEHS.
She added: “This is a wonderful way to communicate to someone that other people do care about them and it develops a sense of mutual appreciation and kindness.
“I am sure the shoe boxes will bring happiness and joy to the victims of natural disasters, famine, war and poverty, and our students should be very proud of what they have accomplished.”
