The Grade 6 and 7 classes are already into the spirit of giving this Advent season.
As a legacy to Father John Brioux (who was a long time supporter of the Samaritan's Purse Operation Christmas Child)the upper intermediate classes have extended their generosity to help bring joy to another child in a developing country. Students collected toys, clothes, school supplies and small toiletries. They sent all these items along with a personal letter and photo in colourful, red, Christmas, shoe boxes.
