The British School of Kuwait (BSK) welcomed the Founder of Operation Hope, Mrs Sheryll Mairza, to an Assembly for a presentation of gifts in aid of the charity. Mrs Mairza joined BSK Assistant Head Teacher Mr Marcus Wild to receive a donation of shoeboxes.
The generosity of the Primary children and their parents at The British School of Kuwait (BSK) knows no bounds. As part of their Personal, Social and Health Education (PSHE) children from Reception to Year 5 focused on the objectives of being respectful to others and being thoughtful and responsible members of their school, their local community and indeed the global community. They did this through their Shoebox Appeal, where they filled a shoebox with things that would bring pleasure to people less fortunate than themselves and then donated it to the chosen charity.
Beautifully wrapped shoeboxes were carefully brought to school by children who had thought about their contents and about who would benefit from them. The children themselves drove forward this initiative after it was raised in PSHE Assemblies.
PSHE education is a planned programme of learning though which pupils acquire the knowledge, understanding and skills they need to manage their lives now and in the future. As part of a whole school approach, it develops the qualities and attributes pupils need to thrive as individuals, family members and members of society.
The British School of Kuwait (BSK) linked up with local charity Operation Hope in order to ensure that people in need benefited from the donations made by these thoughtful leaders of tomorrow.
