One Thursday 10 December, something very meaningful happened in the cafeteria. Kimbo hosted the second annual Staff Appreciation Brunch. Dedicated to all our non-teaching staff, we wanted to show them just how much we appreciated their hard work. Without their important and tireless contributions, school life would not have been this comfortable for all of us.
KIMBO started organizing this event four weeks ago; posters were printed and posted around the school, invitations were delivered to all non-teaching staff, and emails were sent to encourage participation from both primary and secondary sections of the school.
This morning, all the food came in before homeroom. We hung up decorations and set up the tables. When the staff came in, they appeared confused but pleasantly surprised that everything was prepared for them. It was a success. Everyone had a smile on his or her face. They loved the food, the videos, and they certainly loved the music, which they danced to.
Being part of this event was an amazing experience. We can’t say we did it all by ourselves. We would like to thank all parents who supported the event but helping their children with food preparation, PTA for their generous donations of drinks, all the students who participated in one way or another, and all the teachers who guided us in the preparation of the event.
KIMBO would like to wish everyone Happy Holidays!
