Giving is better than receiving ...

Giving is better than receiving. This is the saying which the year 6 children decided to follow for Christmas. Rather than receiving individual gifts from their teachers for Christmas, the year 6 children agreed that the money normally spent on these gifts, should be used to give joy and hope to others less fortunate. As such each year 6 class chose gifts, from either Oxfam or World Vision, to help others more in need than themselves. HB 13 chose to buy in some help for a refugee, HB 14 chose to buy a pile of poo (fertilizer) and a pig, HB 15 chose to buy soap and seeds. HB 16 chose to buy soap and a tap.

It was a very generous gesture from the year 6 children and one that they fully supported.
