Dear Students, Staff and Parents,
Throughout December, Act2Aid held many successful events. A lot of food was collected for our 4th annual food drive, thank you to everyone who added to the collection, we were able to make some people’s Christmas’ a bit brighter. We would also like to say a huge thank you to Mrs Diaz, who helped organise the food drive, and delivered the food to the Voedselbank Alkmaar.
On Wednesday, the 19th of December Act2Aid sold candy canes and Christmas hats in primary, which was very successful, with all of your help we raised over €80. Later that week, LiveAid took place on the 20th of December, the S6 and S7 music class organised an amazing show, that allowed Act2Aid to raise money through collections and selling Christmas hats. Thanks to all your donation we were able to raised over €700, which will hopefully be doubled by the teachers like previous years. The money raised in December will be going to the Tuende Pamoja Charity, it is a charity close to the school’s heart as it was founded by the Barbour family, in Kisampa, Tanzania. And has now been handed over to Bori, a respected member of the village. Their major focuses are education and conservation, so far, they’ve managed to give 127 children the opportunity to go to school.
