School sends boxes of treats out to troops

KIND-HEARTED students and staff at Grays School Media Arts College have filled nearly 100 shoeboxes with Christmas treats for troops abroad.


The school is hoping the boxes, which have been sent out to Afghanistan, will give soldiers a “small reminder of home”.


Mel Williams, student achievement leader for year seven, said: “We were delighted by the response of our students, their families and our staff as we collected just under one hundred filled boxes.


“We are confident that our soldiers will be thrilled with the contents of some of the nation’s ‘favourites’, and we hope that the boxes are a small reminder of home.


“This wonderful idea has brought our school and family community together and has allowed our students to reflect on the importance of being with loved ones, especially at this time of year.


“We want our soldiers and their families to know that we will be thinking about them and the sacrifices that they are making for us.”
