Boys' School donate hampers

December 10, 2013 at 8:47 AM

Towards the end of term, the boys who were recipients of the Christian Living Awards at this year’s Prizegiving, travelled to Wymondley Road Primary School in Otara to deliver 66 Christmas Hampers overflowing with food and gifts, as well as $2000 worth of vouchers for the local butcher. The boys at all year levels had been collating the items to donate to the Wymondley families.

Caleb Boyce, who was awarded the Christian Living Award for Class 8BW describes three highlights:

‘My first highlight was seeing how excited and thankful all the students and families were at receiving their gifts. It gave me a warm feeling inside to know that we have done something great for somebody else and I could see just how thankful they were. My second highlight was the song that they sang for us. It was called ‘Somewhere in the world tonight’. It had an awesome message and they sounded incredible. And, my final highlight was the lollie leys that they gave us. There were so many people coming up onto the stage and presenting us with the leys. It was really cool to see how grateful and generous they were. Finn Jorgenson had seven weighing him down!’

We would like to extend a sincere thank you to the entire school community for the contribution that each family made to the Christmas Hampers and to those volunteers from Parents and Friends who wrapped each item and accompanied the boys to deliver them. It was an amazing and humbling experience to be involved in this act of generosity.
