Friday 18th November saw ISCAT’s end of the Passeig transformed at 3 p.m. to accommodate the first ever Fun Run for charity. The whole school turned out to run different stretches of the Passeig according to age, cheered on by enthusiastic parents, friends and family on the sidelines.
Children worked hard in the days leading up to the event to raise funds through sponsorship for the children in the Democratic Republic of Congo, which is ravaged by war and is statistically the second poorest country on the planet. Through our consistent school-wide focus on the rights of children everywhere, and our work in Assembly each Friday, our students are increasingly aware of their rights and responsibilities towards the less fortunate.
Well done everyone, and a special thank you to all the grandparents, mums and dads, uncles, aunts and cousins who sponsored our students in the run and helped to raise an amazing 1600€ for the Save the Children initiative. Thank you also to the many companies who sponsored us by donating items for the end-of-race ‘goody’ bags.
