While the festive season is a happy time of gift giving, not all children enjoy this same privilege as a result of political upheavals, poverty and domestic violence, etc in their lives.
To make this season a little more joyful for the less fortunate, the ISS Parent Teacher Association (PTA) has organised the ‘ISS Giving Tree ‘ initiative from 1 to 15 Dec 2017. Live and cardboard festive trees will be found at both campuses and parents, students and staff are encouraged to donate gifts. Gift tags have also been printed for all to write their festive wishes and hang these on the trees.
The charities whom the PTA is supporting are the Food Bank, the Eurasian Society, Downs Syndrome Association, Willing Hearts, Rainbow Centre and the Lakeside Family Center.
Let us all encourage each other to support the PTA on their cause to give the less fortunate in our society a festive season to remember.
