Early Years Charity Week 2017
The Early Years children had their annual Charity Week which was held during the week before the Easter holiday. The parents were asked to donate money and the teachers planned fun Easter themed activities for the children to do throughout the week. Some of the activities included making Easter cards and Easter bonnets, baking cakes and creating picture frames. The children in Year 2 made lemonade and sold it to the older children every day for a week during break times. They also collected 1LE coins and made a ‘Mile of Smiles’. The week ended with an Easter Egg Hunt and prizes of chocolate eggs were given to the children who found the most Easter eggs in the garden. The children from FS1, FS2, Year 1, Year 2 and Grade 1 were all involved in these activities throughout the week. The money raised was donated to the Wataneya Society for the development of Orphanages who support caregivers by providing proper training for them. This year the Early Years Department and Grade 1 raised enough money to pay for the training of four of these caregivers who will graduate next year. Asy Girah and Khalid Aziz from the Wataneya Society came into school to accept the cheque donation and were delighted to meet with the children and talked to them about the work of the Wataneya society. The children presented them with a photo album of pictures from charity Week and talked to them about the different Charity Week activities. The Wataneya Society is extremely grateful for our donation and presented us with a thank-you plaque which will be displayed in the school.
