Our Grade I students counted themselves lucky to get the opportunity to visit an orphanage named ‘Grace Home for Children’ on the 19th of June, 2018. The orphanage was home to 35 children and their 6 caretakers. Our caring students were delighted to meet and interact with them, and tried to make a difference to their lives in their own tiny way! With the help of their facilitators, our students distributed colouring materials and stationery such as crayons, paints, clay dough and other essentials to their new friends.
The visit was inspired by our students’ ongoing inquiry on the central idea ‘How our behaviour affects our family and relationships’ and gave them a first-hand experience of what it means to reach out to make a positive difference to those around us.
