Primary Busking Day Supports Angola Rescue-MUSA

On Wednesday, February 21st, 2018, the Primary student council organised a Busking day event which had children from Year 3 to Year 6 showcase their talents along the LIS pathways. The kids planned practised and performed to the other kids and teachers and it was such a great day. We raised Kz 94,478 and thanked everyone for their generous contributions. The student reps decided to support an organisation called Angola Rescue-MUSA (Mães Unidas e Solidárias em Angola) who cook three meals a day plus a snack for the sick children at the David Bernadino Pedriata Hospital (Maria Pia) in Mainga area. We used the money to buy a snack for each of the 400 children. On Sunday 3rd June, these were delivered to the hospital and each child received a banana and a small packet of milk.

In addition to this, the students in Year 4 were inquiring into food security and after a great presentation from the MUSA guest speakers, Ms Suse and Mr. Pedro, we took action to do chores in exchange for dried foods and money. We collected 10 boxes of a variety of food and Kz21,522. So the Year 4 gave this money to the student council and together Kz116, 000 was collected and we bought 456 bananas and 456 milk for the sick children.

Thank you to everyone for putting smiles on the children’s faces.
