Elderly Home Visit - Make Them Smile

Within their Community Project "Make Them Smile" Dina and Elena (MYP3) organised the visit to the "Home for the elderly and disabled Tresnjevka" on May 11th. Along with the E5 and MYP representatives Elena and Dina gave to the elderly the present boxes and a lot of books they successfully managed to collect.

Since the elderly are often forgotten and are sad and lonely, Dina and Elena decided to bring joy and happiness to cheer them up and to show them that they are not forgotten. Throughout the project they organised many activities, including the charity tombola, in order to collect 150 present boxes and a lot of books for the library they planned to open within the Elderly Home.

The response of all students and teachers was enthusiastic and the whole project is a great success because we made the elderly smile and showed our appreciation and care.
