Our students stepped into shoes of homeless magazine vendors

On April 11th MYP3 students participated in selling the "Street Lights" magazine along with homeless people. Despite the rain they sold more than expected and helped the homeless earn an income. After the job done all the sellers were awarded with a cake and ice cream.

There are many times all of us have walked by these vendors not picking up the paper, not really paying attention, and not really understanding or appreciating how hard they work to make a living, but this project and action certainly alerted us to the difficulties homeless people face in earning an income.
