Getting in the SandBox

January 12, 2016

British International School of Charlotte is getting in the ‘Sandbox’

  • lovebaskets


The BISC community is supporting the charity Sandbox this year. The Sandbox locks arms with the local community and walks with families who have a child that has been diagnosed with cancer or life altering illness. Their goal is to help children and their families during the most tumultuous times of their lives so they can focus on the most important factors: Believing and Healing.

Here are some of the tremendous activities our children have already coordinated.

Students in our middle and high school drove a campaign to create as many ‘Love Baskets’ as possible. They included household items, toiletries, and many other thoughtful gifts. Each basket averaged $150 worth of goodies. With the support of the school 26 baskets were created and then delivered to local families during the holiday season.

Mrs. Tombs and our Year 10 students seized an opportunity during the school play to sell refreshments during the intermission. They warmed our audience up with hot chocolate and cookies and raised over $300 for this amazing cause.

The end of the fall semester showcased our ‘Gruesome Tasks’. Mr. Grey, Mr. Bridgland, Mr. Paige and Mr. Stevens took part in pie eating, egg smashing and ice cold challenges created by our high school students. Through their generosity and sportsmanship we raised over $200 for SANDBOX.

Our younger students took the opportunity over Thanksgiving to reflect and create our Thanksgiving trees. Students and families donated money so they could hang turkeys and leaves on the tree which listed items for which they were thankful.

As a school we have many more creative and exciting opportunities to lock arms with this wonderful cause.

Thank you for all you support and encouragement.
