We contacted Carepack a few weeks ago as we wanted to make a difference to the lives of nursing home residents this Christmas. Through Carepack we got 22 names of nursing home residents one of which was given to each child in the class. When the children were given their names they then went shopping with their parents to buy a special gift for their resident.
The children were so amazing. They bought the most incredible gifts and some of them even made their own by drawing pictures and placing them in frames so that their resident could have them forever. The children also designed their own cards and wrote heartfelt wishes and messages.
Participating in Carepack this year was wonderful. It spread so much love and joy in our classroom and made the children more aware of the gift of giving and the real difference it makes to the lives of others.
The entire school community are so proud of all the children in 1st and 2nd class and want to say thank you to their parents too who helped them to be creative and heartfelt in their gift giving.
Happy Christmas from 1st and 2nd Class.
