THE generosity of Parkview Public’s year 6 class is overflowing in the main office at the school.
This year, with the help of school chaplain Anna Celi, the class is holding a charity toy drive.
Donations have been pouring in since the idea was first put into place almost two weeks ago and it’s something Mrs Celi has been proud to oversee.
“It’s the first year we’ve done it,” she said.
“The support already has been so amazing.
“I think it was a wonderful idea from the kids. They are always so willing to help others in need.”
The idea behind the drive is to ensure no children in Leeton shire go without receiving a toy or gift this Christmas.
The school is accepting donations of these items for children of all ages up until Friday.
They will then be handed over to St Vincent De Paul to distribute to families in the area.
All members of the community have been invited to donate if they can as it’s not just a school-only project.
Parkview Public principal Travis Irvin said the generosity of the town was already shining through.
“As you can see, we’ve already received many donations,” he said.
“We know there are children out there who may not receive much this Christmas and this is how year 6 wanted to help out.
“It’s something the students learn about throughout their school life here.
“Through our welfare programs they learn it’s important to always help others when they can.”
Donations will be accepted at the school throughout this week.
