Year 1 have a long partnership with Thien Phuoc, where the children come to BIS every week to play with the Year 1 students. This year, we are hosting the playdates in the Fundinotots room at the Infant Campus. The BIS students were excited to buy and wrap presents for their friends at Thien Phuoc. They even bought gifts for the staff at Thien Phuoc, which spread even more Christmas merriment. There was such a generous response from Year 1 that each Thien Phuoc resident received a Christmas gift, with some to spare! That’s over 70 presents! We even had a thoughtful donation of stocking stuffers from Kepi. Everyone enjoyed passing out the presents and seeing so many smiling faces.
We would like to say a big Christmas ‘thank you’ to the parents of Year 1, who took time and energy organizing all the gifts. We look forward to another great year of fun and friendship with the children at Thien Phuoc Foster Home!
