Children to Children

Our Visit to Children's Home “Alojzije Stepinac” in Brezovica

Following last year’s visit, as a part of our Community and Service activities we visited the children with special needs at the Children’s Home in Brezovica.

The students, parents and teachers of our school collected sheets, blankets, sweets and other needed items for the children and their home. Volunteers from E5 and MYP classes spent the morning touring the home and socialising with the children. The director of the home and one of the social workers introduced us to the children and their care takers. They took us around the home and welcomed us warmly with snacks and tea while we got to know each other.

It was a great experience for all of us since it opened our eyes to how much we take for granted; our privileges, opportunities and blessings… It is sad to see how we can do things they will never be able to do. However, they still have smiles on their faces and enjoy life as much as possible, playing and learning just as we are, in another world.
