Every year before we close for Christmas, the students of BISA Seconday school host a party for all the children of the wider Kisongo area. It is a joyous day of giving and fun! Many of these children come every week on a Saturday for school. Each Saturday they arrive for lessons, fun and swimming classes! The swimming classes are important. It is here, in the water, where children learn to overcome fear and learn an incredibly important life saving skill. These classes are run weekly by Charles and our Year 13 student, one of our top swimmers, Ciaran. They are run with great dedication.
But the end of year Christmas Party is a much loved event.
Close on 300 children arrive. Our students prepare a busy day, filled with fun events such as arts and crafts, games, sports, a hearty lunch and each child is sent home with a Christmas present.
We are so proud of our students who give up their week end time to share and give to other less priviledged children.
Wishing you all a very merry Christmas!
