Charity Gift Box Appeal – Promoting Diversity

Over the weekend some of our boys went to help prepare presents for this year’s gift box appeal.The annual gift box project is a project where students choose to participate by donating either money or items. This includes items like toothbrush, soap, school supplies, socks, toys, chocolate and etc. Essential items that make their lives easier. The boxes are sent to needy children in orphanages, schools and hospitals in Eastern Europe who are living below poverty.

This is a great event and the boys were delighted to be part of this. It shows that we as a community are willing to help and do something nice for other people, no matter what country or background they come from.

This also means that some of our boys have completed their individual projects for the second Wellbeing Pillar – Protecting against bullying and promoting diversity.

Michel, Nikita, Hamza and LuLu all helping Ms.Lucélia.
