Team Hope Christmas Shoebox Appeal

In excess of 60 TY students from across our five classes organised and co-ordinated the Christmas Shoeboxes for Team Hope 2019. The co-operating teacher is  Ms. Hooke and she is assisted by Ms. Harrold, Mr. Donnellan and Ms. McGuane.

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!

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 2020), 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 402 Christmas shoe boxes.This is a record for the school. Thanks to everyone for their generous support.
