On Saturday 28
March, 23 students from Year 7 to Year 12 and BIS staff visited Go Vap orphanage. The Go Vap orphanage student committee: Khanh, Su En, Nikita, Se Hyun, Katherine and Kentaro from Year 12 planned out some great activities for the children to do for the morning.
The children were given plastic cups and name labels. They added soil, plant seeds and a few droplets of water to the plastic cups. Hopefully when the students return next time, some plants will have sprouted! The students also coloured in pictures with the younger children, playing games with them and took part in parachute games with some of the older children. Additionally, the visit hopes to raise awareness of hydrocephalus syndrome which still affects babies and young children in Vietnam.
Ms Claudia Davaar Lambie,
It was a wonderful morning. At the end of the visit, the students were lucky enough to meet the Director of the orphanage who thanked the students for volunteering their time and donating some essentials such as rice. One of the monks from the pagoda also gave each student a bracelet to say thank you.
