The CDL Make A Difference Society (MADS) and the Parent Faculty Association (PFA) are teaming up to support the Partage food bank this year. Partage is a Geneva-based, hunger-fighting charity, which supports thousands of fortunate individuals and families each week with 3 main goals:
- Social: helping those in a precarious situation and fighting hunger
- Economic: providing professional rehabilitation for job seekers
- Ecological: reducing food waste while maintaining a small ecological footprint
During these difficult times, it was nice to see Elise jump at the opportunity to help others. This was her individual project for the Wellbeing Pillar 2, celebrating diversity and combating against bullying.
Well done, Elise!
Sakura thank you for this project which can be linked to our wellbeing project. Bringing diversity and inclusion through a Japanese recipe.
Bianka and Radka thank you so much for helping with the decoration.
WELL DONE GIRLS!
Bianka was craving a typical Slovak dish and she wanted to share a typical dish from her country to promote diversity. Sakura, her roommate, helped her and learnt the cultural fact from a completely different country. They embrace together the art of cooking.
THEY MADE FRITULKY
On Saturdays, the girls enjoy their time together and have a yummy lunch.
We can not go to Geneva, but we still have fun together.
We wish you a lovely day. Thank you for all your help and support.
Love, New Portena
Some of our girls helped packing and carrying boxes for the gift box appeal as part of their individual project for this Wellbeing Pillar, which is celebrating diversity and combating against bullying.
This appeal is aimed at helping children learn about giving to others not as fortune as they are. The timing links well with the UN “Rights of the Child Day” on 20th November. A number of schools use the appeal to show that poverty is not so far away and help students to understand how others live. This is a non religious and purely humanitarian appeal. The Gift Boxes get sent to needy children in Eastern Europe children who have never had a gift, many living in unbelievable poverty. In the boxes are special treats, sweets and toys, provide toiletries and especially school needs, so helping them attend school with items not provided by the state.
