Eurécole is joining forces with the Eurécape parents’ association to carry out two charity operations at the end of the year.
First of all, there is the Love in the Box operation which consists in decorating a shoe box, choosing if it is for a girl or a boy and the age of the child to whom you want to offer it. Then you have to fill it with toiletries (toothpaste, toothbrush, soaps) but also with a pair of gloves and a hat. As we are in a festive time, we also add a toy, a book, crayons or markers and candies. This decorated box is brought to the school who then contacts the French Red Cross who will redistribute these boxes to needy children. The idea is that each child who wishes to do so chooses what he or she wants to put inside the box and how to decorate it. He or she usually gives the box to a child of the same age as him or her so that he or she can be more involved in the donation.
The other operation concerns the Christmas of solidarity for the children of Lebanon. It is organized by the « Baroudeurs de l’espoir » and the city hall of the 16th district. The aim is to help school children in priority, by collecting school supplies here which will be distributed to them there: Pencil case – Colored pencils, pencils, pencil sharpeners, erasers, pens, correctors, glues, Geometry kit: squares, rulers, compasses, etc. A4 notebook 96 pages – Drawing book, Scientific calculator, Markers and erasers, etc… All this important material for learning is too often lacking in Lebanon.
These different operations are essential for our school and for the teaching team which wishes to transmit values of sharing to its students during this holiday period.
