On Monday, the Intermediate VCAL boys continued a recent end of year tradition by volunteering as part of Operation Christmas Child – a great program run by an organisation called Samaritan’s Purse. The project involves gathering, packing and sending toy-filled shoe boxes to children in developing countries, this year being the Philippines. Tasks included item inspection, packing and taping, quality control and stacking on the pallets. The experience offers an opportunity for the boys to build social capital and empathy for those in less fortunate situations while continuing to complete outcomes as part of the VCAL curriculum. Well done gentlemen.
