Pupils help fill Bosnian Christmas boxes

Bucks Free Press: Pupils help fill Bosnian Christmas boxes Pupils help fill Bosnian Christmas boxes

CHILDREN from St Teresa's School in Princes Risborough helped pack up Christmas boxes for children in Bosnia.

Six pupils were given the chance to go to the Operation Christmas Child's distribution warehouse in Thame, due to the school's long connection with the charity.

They took with them 90 filled shoe boxes for the appeal all of which had been donated by parents, children and staff.

Each box contained such things as toys, colouring pencils, hat, gloves, toothbrush, toothpaste, soap and maybe some sweets.

The children were able to assist with filling boxes, checking the contents and sealing them, ready for dispatch by lorry to Bosnia.

Thankfully this local school is teaching children about the global picture rather than your narrow view of the world.

Whether they are helping someone from the next street or on the other side of the world is not relevant. The fact that they are helping someone less fortunate is something to celebrate and welcome.

Well done to all involved.

No it doesn't, it begins with the greatest need.

Clearly there are a lot of subjective value judgements that can be made but teaching kids in Risborough that there are a lot of people in the world far worse off than them can only be a good thing
