BISB Students Learn to Give Back

November 24, 2014

From dolls, dress-up clothes, sports equipment and toy trucks to warm coats, hats and mittens, the wishes of Boston's needy children vary greatly. But this holiday season, the British International School of Boston is hoping to make many of them come true.

The school is getting students of all ages, as well as parents and staff, involved in community service this holiday season, creating a Giving Tree to help match BISB families with children in need from around the city.

We have approached several shelters in the area, asking them what their families either need, or would love to have, as a gift. The wishes will be numbered and linked to the family/shelter from which the wish came. Our high school students will get involved to help deliver the gifts to the shelters later this year.

Community service is an integral part of every child’s learning experience, and the holidays especially are an important time for people to reflect on what they have and give back to those who are less fortunate.

We hope that by giving back to the local community our student body will achieve a greater appreciation for what they have and understand how serving your community can go a long way.

We hope that all children from the Toddlers to Year 6 will want to take home an envelope and help grant the children’s wishes. Our middle students have been given the opportunity to adopt a local family in need, working with Lazurus House in Lawerence, Mass. to provide gifts and warm clothing for families in need.

All gifts must be wrapped, labled and returned back to the school to be placed under the Giving Tree by December 10. The Giving Tree in the school lobby will reflect all of the wishes.  

We hope that every student will take part in this ‘giving back’ opportunity!
