CHILDREN from Horndon-on-the-Hill Church of England Primary School recently filled 97 boxes as part of the Operation Christmas Child appeal.

They were filled with treats for children less fortunate that themselves, and will be shipped around the world.

Here are some Year 1 pupils with their mountain of shoeboxes.

Michael Gove and Michael Wilshire won't be pleased that Horndon pupils are 'wasting' valuable learning time, when recent SATs results have been so poor!

After all, school is just about 'qualifications' according to them...not 'education'!

Hope the clueless pair, both got some brains for Christmas!
