For the very first time, December 11th was Christmas Jumper Day at Novaschool Sunland International. It was an amazing Friday because Santa Claus visited our Reception and Preschool pupils the same day!
Students, teachers and school staff come to school wearing a Christmas jumper for a small donation of 1€ which goes straight to Save the Children, a fabulous charity which helps children from around the world.
This organisation promotes policy changes to gain more rights for young people to improve their lives through better education, health care and economic opportunities – especially by enforcing the UN Declaration of the Rights of the Child while providing emergency aid in natural disasters, war and other types of conflicts.
The Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Department of the Novaschool Educational Group is concerned that our students develop their solidarity spirit and empathy carrying out different actions and projects which always serve human and social rights.
That is why we organise lots of solidarity initiatives in order to involve our pupils to the fullest and raise awareness about other peoples’ needs.
Today, we are pleased to announce that the amount raised by our Save the Children Christmas Jumper Day – organised by Miss Sarah Walton, Y3B Tutor – is €795.90.
This was a world-wide event and we are extremely happy with the result achieved
THANK YOU SUNLANDERS!
At this time of the year, you would normally be invited for a Christmas performance put together by your children. Unfortunately, all performances have been cancelled due to the current situation.
However, we will be taking pictures or making a video in class, with the children singing and dancing – we are going to do this when they receive their “Secret Santa” – so that you can enjoy this special momet of the year with us.
