MAGS gets into the giv­ing mood

The Riverine Herald - - NEWS -

MOAMA Angli­can Gram­mar stu­dents were he­roes for a day last Fri­day, sup­port­ing Angli­care’s toy drive and Christ­mas ham­per ap­peal.

Stu­dents dressed as their favourite su­per­heroes and do­nated toys and food for Angli­care to dis­trib­ute to lo­cal fam­i­lies.

Tim Bowles, MAGS chap­lain, said the drive had been well sup­ported in its first week.

‘‘This is some­thing we’ve done that is an op­por­tu­nity for Moama Gram­mar staff and stu­dents to bring joy and en­cour­age­ment at Christ­mas time as well as liv­ing out the Chris­tian as­pect at MAGS of show­ing kind­ness and com­pas­sion.’’

He said the dona­tion drive en­cour­aged stu­dents and fam­i­lies to pause and think about oth­ers.

‘‘It’s an op­por­tu­nity for stu­dents to think be­yond ‘what will I get for Christ­mas’?’’

Mr Bowles thanked the MAGS par­ents and friends group for co­or­di­nat­ing the cam­paign.

SU­PER IDEA: Moama Gram­mar School stu­dents dressed as their favourite su­per­heroes and do­nated toys and non-per­ish­able foods.
