Ms. Angus made our final visit of the term to the Que Huong orphanage in Binh Duong. We used the money that the school raised from the Halloween mufti day to buy school uniforms for the children at the orphanage. 102 sets of uniform were specially made for the children and we delivered them last weekend. We presented the uniform to the managers at the orphanage and some of the children came to try them on. This is an early Christmas gift from our school to the children.
We spent the Sunday morning playing with the kids as usual. The activities mainly involved making jewels from pipe cleaner for the kids, blowing bubbles, reading stories and making play dough with them. The kids were so carried away with Linh’s talent of making glasses out of the pipe cleaners for them. They queued up and wouldn’t stop calling Linh’s name to make glasses for them. For us, this was a remarkable change in attitude of the child since it has always been so hard to get them to be organized every time we visited them. We also spent time reading children books for them, which they love so much because for them, books are luxuries as the orphanages cannot afford books for so many of them.
The 6th form community service club is looking into ideas for gifts to bring to the children in our next trip on Tet holiday. We will be informing you in the new year about the specific items we hope the BVIS community will help donate. We think this will be kitchen items, personal hygiene tools, such as clothes and toothbrushes; a lot of books; and mostly children’s toys. We hope you will all join with is in this. Please show your kindness and support the children at the orphanage.
Annie & Linh Yr 12.
