This Thursday (28th November), in return for a night without homework, we are asking the children to try to raise some money for the Philippines Disaster Fund. We are asking them to do this by 'working' and 'offering to do jobs' at home e.g. washing the dishes, sorting washing, dusting, hoovering etc. in return for a euro or two.
Please encourage the children in their efforts. By earning the money and donating it to others we hope the children will feel not only a sense of pride, but also the pleasure that helping others gives, especially when they themselves will receive so much at Christmas
"It came without ribbons! It came without tags! It came without packages, boxes or bags!"...
Then the Grinch thought of something he hadn't before!
"Maybe Christmas," he thought, "doesn't come from a store.
Maybe Christmas... perhaps... means a little bit more!"
~Dr. Seuss, How the Grinch Stole Christmas!
