Thinking Outside the Box

Up, up and away…a big thank you to all the students who took part in the Academy’s annual Shoe Box Appeal with over one hundred boxes leaving the school this afternoon destination Serbia.  Thanks to Mrs McVey for organising the collection and  to the many dedicated and thoughtful students who gave of their time and energy to help the project on its way.  And, of course,  to the energetic crew from Blythwood who even found the time for a spot of table tennis.

“Blythswood Ireland have been supporting this appeal for almost 15 years and in the last three years over 50,000 filled shoeboxes have been sent from Ireland.  We are grateful for every single box and the support of schools, churches, businesses and individuals who help to bring people less well off some joy at Christmas.”
