't Blokje 2009

 

 

‘This school year, in keeping with tradition, ’t Blokje once more links its annual theme to a global project. We chose ‘Vleugels van Hoop’, (Wings of Hope) a volunteer organization devoted to helping children in Central Africa. Our children have already been introduced to one of its current projects on October 20th. Bernadette, François and Hilde came to talk about a school in Rwanda. During the war, part of the buildings had been destroyed and the girls had to sleep in the classrooms. This way, the classes could no longer serve their actual purpose: teaching.

Meanwhile, the buildings have been repaired (in fact, a new dormitory was built), though they haven’t been equipped yet. We would like to help ‘Vleugels van Hoop’ accomplish that. During the last few weeks, we’ve been crafting away for the school in Shyorongi. The entire profit made from selling these pieces at our Christmas market will be donated to their organization.
Because the people of ‘Vleugels van Hoop’ had brought along such an abundance of materials at their presentation and because one afternoon was just not enough to look at all those nice things, Miss Hilde and Miss Denise gladly spent some more time during their classes to further immerse the children in the lives of our African friends.

Musical instruments, toys, small works of art, home appliances and all sorts of pictures were pored over with much curiosity and interest.

During the second semester, our students and teachers will enjoy themselves preparing a musical performance about Africa, the climax of which you can attend on Friday, 28 May 2010.

SONG, DANCE, MUSIC, THEATRE AND WONDERFUL IMAGES WILL GUIDE YOU ALONG THE MANY PEARLS AFRICA HAS TO OFFER. SET THIS DATE ASIDE AND LET OUR STUDENTS SURPRISE YOU!
