Over 800 Euros raised by the student council at the Holiday Bazaar

This year, for the first time the student council organized a two-day holiday bazaar, raising over 800 Euros. Student council member Zinzan Gurney tells us more.

This year, for the first time the Secondary School student council organized a two-day holiday bazaar to mark the winter break. The bazaar is a longstanding ISP tradition, where members of the community buy holiday gifts for loved ones while raising money for a good cause. This year the bazaar's proceeds went to ISP's 2017 Sustainable Development Project, an ongoing initiative to raise money and build an orphanage in Ghana.

In the last week before the winter break, something special was in the air. For the first time, the student council organised the Holiday Bazaar for the Secondary School on December 12 and 13, 2016. Students joined in together in the spirit of generosity to purchase handmade goods for their friends and family and enjoy the sweet and savoury snacks prepared by the parents. There was even an opportunity to win prizes in a raffle, ranging from a make-up kit to a Swatch watch! The event was an overwhelming success, raising over 800 Euros for the Ghana team to help build an orphanage in the rural Tafi Atome village in Ghana. The bazaar brought students together to celebrate the passing of another year and look forward to what the New Year might bring to ISP in 2017.

Primary School Student Council Holds Used Book Sale for Charity

Student Council holds used book sale from June 9 to the end of the school year at Ranelagh campus.

On June 9, members of Student Council hosted a used book sale at the Primary School with all proceeds going to support refugees in Europe. Supported by teachers Ms Assil Charara and Ms Marianne Freire, the book sale came to fruition with donors giving used books to ISP and Student Council organising the event. Earning almost 400 Euros, the event had a great turnout! Students were able to buy books from all different languages, subjects and interests. Thanks go to all students who helped with organising the event and selling and displaying books as well as to the families who so generously donated books.

Since there are still books for sale, books will be available to purchase after school hours at the Ranelagh campus until the last day of school. They are for sale for one Euro each, so be sure to stop by and grab some summer reading before its too late!
