The families at Stower Provost have once again been very generous this year in making up Christmas shoe-boxes for disadvantaged children in Montenegro, Romania and Ukraine. For many of these poor families, this will be the only present they receive at Christmas. The boxes were collected by the local Rotary Club who organised the transportation to other countries.
The contents of the boxes include toiletries, small toys, pens and pencils and crayons, hats, scarves, gloves and games or puzzles. We have been donating boxes to this appeal for the last five years and each year we try (successfully) to increase the number of boxes.
We place a strong emphasis on the British Values of:
- the rule of law
- individual liberty
- mutual respect for and tolerance of those with different faiths and beliefs and for those without faith.
We encourage the children to learn more about how these values impact on life in Britain, and for the whole school community to show respect for these values at all times.
