🎁 Christmas Shoebox Appeal 2021 🎄

Time to start thinking about Christmas!!
Team Hope’s Christmas Shoe Box Appeal is up and running and we would like everyone to fill a shoebox for vulnerable children overseas.
This may be the only gift they receive this Christmas so we would like to collect as many as possible!

You can pick up a leaflet at reception and drop your shoebox to Ms Hynes in C2 by the 6th of November.

Look out for posters around the school with ideas of what to include in your gift. Don’t forget to include €4 to cover the cost of delivery and close your box with just an elastic band!
