For 15 years, St John’s has taken part in Samaritans Purse, Operation Christmas Child. As a school we have sent 4267 shoeboxes over that time, and another 300 shoeboxes will be heading overseas this year. Operation Christmas Child is a hands-on way for Australians and New Zealanders to bless children in need around the world by filling shoeboxes with toys, hygiene items, school supplies, and other fun gifts. These are then distributed to children in over 100 countries in the Name of Jesus Christ.
The mission of Operation Christmas Child is to provide God’s love in a tangible way to children in need around the world, and together with the local church worldwide, to share the Good News of Jesus Christ.
It is a privilege for our students to be part of this wonderful project.
