Operation Christmas Child 2016

Westgate's kindness knows no bounds!

Students from Years 7,8,9 and 10 embraced this year's Operation Christmas Child campaign organised by The Samaritans. Tasked with creating gift hampers by using shoe boxes for girls and boys, staff were not expecting such generosity and kindness.  The boxes were filled with gifts including stationary, toiletries, scarves/gloves, books and games. The Directors of Learning that led the initiative, Miss Selli, Mr Paxman and Mrs Embleton enjoyed working  with their enthusiastic students and they were hugely impressed with the amount of donations received.  Students hope that children receiving the boxes, which included heartfelt messages, will bring joy to children from poorer countries that won't be as lucky as themselves.
