Westminster Celebrates the Season of Giving with a Twist on Secret Santa

On Friday, Upper School students finally revealed their identities to their Grammar School partners as part of this year’s Secret Santa event. Over the years, the event has evolved from one of simple gift giving to reflect the season of giving and outward focus.

ssanta2This year, the student body acted as a partner with Su Casa Family Ministries to provide less fortunate children with gifts. The aim of Su Casa is to “glorify God and advance His Kingdom by ministering to the spiritual, physical and social needs of Hispanic residents in the Memphis area.” The students took on the task of providing each child within the ministry a gift this Christmas.

Mary Banks Hickman was one of this year’s coordinators of the event. “”What I love most about Secret Santa is that it is so much more than a Christmas party,” she said. “Not only does it allow for the Upper School and Grammar School students to cultivate great relationships, but also, through the giving of gifts to Su Casa, allows for everyone to experience the true meaning of Christmas.”
