Team Hope Christmas Shoebox Appeal
Our TY 2 class organised and co-ordinated the Christmas Shoeboxes for Team Hope this year. The co-operating teacher is Ms. Hooke.
Over the last eighteen years Team Hope have delivered shoebox gifts to over three million children, to some of the remotest and poorest parts of the world and Coláiste Muire has played a part in this!
As TY 2 explain, a Christmas shoebox can contain a selection of small gifts from the options below:
TO WRITE – Items for school – like a pen, pencil, copy book, paper, colouring book, felt pens, sharpener, eraser, solar calculator.
TO WASH – Some hygiene items – toothbrush and toothpaste, soap (wrapped please), facecloth, hairbrush, comb.
TO WEAR – Small clothing items – a hat, scarf, gloves, socks or underwear
WOW ! – A treat – sunglasses, game, small Irish gift, a photo of yourself, sweets (must be in date until at least March 201r9), make up, a small musical instrument, toys like a doll, a car, cuddly toy, skipping rope, yo-yo, a finger puppet.
This year Coláiste Muire has succeeded in filling in excess of 350 Christmas shoe boxes. Thanks to everyone for their generous support.
