Visit to the Children's Home

On the morning of the 6th of December the students of MYP 0, 1, 2 and 3 visited the Children's Home "Alojzije Stepinac" in Brezovica as a part of the Service as Action activities. Before the visit the students had been collecting presents and gifts for the children who live there. The students brought everything from shoes to toys.

After we came to the Children's Home we were kindly welcomed. Then we were divided into two groups, the first group was engaged in a football match inside the gym of the centre, while the other group participated in the Art workshops. We made Christmas decorations side by side with children there and talked trying to get to know each other better. So far out of all of the years I think that the amount of presents we brought this year was far greater than in the last four years. We hope that we can improve the children's lives every time we bring something to cheer them up and make them feel happy.

All in all the visit was excellent and we hope we helped out a lot. It is always important to be helpful, sympathetic, kind, compassionate and considerate to each another, especially to children and people with special needs. Because small things like presents can have a huge impact on the people around you, which is why we also encourage you to be that way as well.

We would like to thank all the students, their parents and teachers who participated in this community activity.
