As part of Operation Christmas Child, staff and students at the school collected items that were then packed into shoeboxes and wrapped up.

Together, they filled around 50 shoeboxes with small gifts and on November 14 pupils helped to load them into a van driven by a volunteer from the charity.

The boxes were then taken to a warehouse before being sent to youngsters to enjoy this Christmas.
