aged 2 to 18 have been busy working together as part of Operation Christmas
Child (OCC) this month. Students at Bromsgrove School got involved with
Samaritans Purse, who organise OCC each year, by filling and wrapping shoe
boxes to send to other children less fortunate than themselves.
the last few months over 160 boxes have been collected across the Pre-Prep and
Senior Schools, carefully packed with donations of toys, school supplies, basic
clothing and hygiene items. Helpers from Samaritan’s Purse have now collected
the boxes ready to deliver them all around the world in time for Christmas.
Ivison, from Bromsgrove Pre-Prep says, “The children at Bromsgrove Pre-Prep are very excited at the prospect of
sharing the joy of Christmas with other children from different parts of the
world. Pupils from the three
Reception classes had great fun helping to load their boxes onto the van. We
wish to thank all of the children and families who took part.”
The Senior School also enjoyed a visit from the
charity, with over 80 boxes collected at the Worcester Road School Tuesday, 18th November.
