Showing empathy for the victims of the recent earthquake in Amatrice in Italy

We held 'Earth Day' at the end of September to raise money for the victims of the recent earthquake in Amatrice.  On this day, we brought in €2 each to wear our old clothes, clothes we could comfortably plant, weed and explore the beauty of the earth in.  We had special lessons in which we learned about and sang about the beauty and power of the earth.  We were reminded of what we can do to look after and protect it.  img_7869.jpg

All in all, we raised €150 which the Erasmus Plus delegation from our school brought to Faenza, Italy with them in October and presented to our partner school there to be put towards the rebuilding of the school in Amatrice that was destroyed in the earthquake.  Our thoughts and prayers are with those who have suffered.  It feels good to help others.
