SVP Food Drive 2016

Twas the 14th of December 
In the school hall 
When an abundance of food was brought in by all.
The best part.. it's all for St Vincent de Paul

4th years with xmas jumpers and a festive attitude 
Packed bags full to the brim with food.

All hands were on deck, carols were sung,
A sure sign that the Christmas season has begun.
A great day of fun for a fantastic charity,
Reminded us all that Christmas is a time of giving and generosity.

On Wednesday the 14th of December, a huge team of 4th years, assisted by Ms Gaughan and the Student Council gathered in the hall to collect and pack food for our school's Annual St Vincent De Paul food drive. All students and teachers were invited to dress in Christmas jumpers and bring in food, particularly Christmas treats, to be donated to St Vincent de Paul. In the true spirit of Christmas, both students and teachers were extremely generous and we collected a huge amount of food for families in need, bringing some holiday cheer to them at Christmas.

The hall was quite literally packed with food, from mince pies to selection boxes. We all organised the food and packed it into bags before it was taken to the local St Vincent De Paul branch. It will be distributed to families just in time for the Christmas holidays. A great day was had by everybody. There was a fantastic atmosphere in the hall, the fact that we were able to contribute so much to such a fantastic charity really helped everybody to get into the Christmas mood!

We would like to thank everybody who contributed so generously to our food drive this year. Happy Christmas!
