Shoe Box Appeal
Each Year, we support the Shoebox Appeal. We donate to this via wrapping and packing shoeboxes to send internationally to those who may not have a present this Christmas. We come together to support this initiative as a school community and truly seek to live out Matthew 25:40 : "The King will reply, 'Truly I tell you, whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.' The Shoebox appeal is our way of fulfilling our school mission of “Giving Glory to God by serving others”.
This year is in memory of Colm Smyth, his passion and joy for giving to others and how much he cared for this and the school.
“A true Irish gentleman who would stop and talk to friend and stranger, treating everyone as equal and would go out of his way for those in greater need. His infectious personality would lift the mood of any on the darkest day. A hardworking man, strong religious faith and in touch with reality.”
The shoeboxes were collected November 16th and as a school community, we prepared and sent 440 shoeboxes. Our sincerest gratitude to all for giving their very best to support such a wonderful act of social outreach.
