Rainford High School pupils spreading Christmas cheer with shoebox collection

Pupils at Rainford High School have once again made sure children not as fortunate as themselves will have a present at Christmas….

Many of the pupils at Rainford High School across Years Seven and Eight have donated over fifty gift-filled shoeboxes for vulnerable children across the world as part of Samaritan’s Purse Operation Christmas Child, one of the UK’s largest annual children’s charity projects.

Mary Robinson, Curriculum Lead for Geography said “One of the key aims of the department is to not only promote environmental awareness but social responsibility. How each individual can make a difference. What the students have achieved, guided by Miss Donavan is outstanding and to those who receive a gift, it will definitely make a difference”.

Ian Young, principal at Rainford High, said: “We’re incredibly grateful to our students and wider school community for their incredibly generous support to the shoebox appeal. The boxes will help to give a happier Christmas to children all over the world and we in turn wish you a very Happy Christmas.”
