For the second year running, Elm Court School has been involved with the Samaritan Purse Project ‘Operation Christmas Child’.

But just what is ‘Operation Christmas child?’

Since 1990, more than 113 million boys and girls in over 130 countries have experienced love through the power of simple shoebox gifts from Operation Christmas Child.

Many schools as well as other organisations have been committed to packing and sending off shoe boxes full of lovely gifts, to children who would otherwise receive nothing for Christmas. 12 shoe boxes were sent off from our school, to underprivileged children. Our students were able to encounter the real meaning behind Christmas. Giving!
