As part of the Health and Family Life Education (HFLE) program at the Tete Morne Primary School, the senior students of the school have seen the need to give back to their community in a special way.
After discussions among staff and students, it was decided that food hampers would be given to three senior citizens and one physically challenged man. In addition, it was also agreed that the students, under their teacher’s supervision, would take on a chore in or around the homes of the target persons when the hampers were being delivered.
Most of the items used in the hampers were contributed by the students of grades five and six. However, a few students from the other classes also made contributions.
This drive was in an effort to teach the students that young citizens can positively contribute to society in meaningful ways such as taking into consideration vulnerable people like the elderly or physically challenged who often times go unnoticed.
On Wednesday 14th December, at a special assembly, the students were enlightened about what God Almighty feels about giving through Bible verses like Hebrews 13:16, Acts 20:35 and Proverbs 19:17. The hampers were delivered on that day.
We hope to take on other similar activities so as to help cultivate positive, compassionate and responsible citizens.
