Charity continues at school

13jan2020-charityAt BSGC, we have a strong commitment to preparing our students to become capable, compassionate and active custodians of the world, with acts of service playing an important role in this preparation. Over the last few months, our Year 10 students have organised two charitable collections and, by doing so, they have developed a different perspective to life on the island.

In October, secondary students donated unwanted clothes that the Year 10 students collected and weighed, with prizes awarded to the Tutor Group with the heaviest clothing donation (7MF) and the most donated items (8SS). A group of Year 10 volunteers then visited the Iglesia Evangelica de Jinámar on November 5th, to distribute the clothing, which was extremely well received by the local community.

As Christmas time is often a time we treat ourselves to delicious food and some families do not have the luxury, our Year 10 led an initiative to collect Christmas sweets for the needy families. The students arranged the collection and donation of these gifts to Iglesia Evangelica de Jinámar.

The participating students gained invaluable transferrable skills through their involvement in these charitable collections; all letters to parents, notifications to students and school wide publicity for the collections were created by Year 10 students. The students who visited the Jinámar Church clothing bank prepared an assembly sharing their thoughts and experiences with other students in the school. However, perhaps the most important thing students learnt was the fulfillment experienced when helping others!
