St Joseph’s students donate Christmas gifts to Children’s Home

joseph1St. Joseph’s High School, Georgetown, recently donated a quantity of gifts to the West Ruimveldt Children’s Home, as part of their annual Christmas charity programme, which had the participation of students and teachers alike.

The donation was made at the West Ruimveldt Children’s Home, to over 20 children. As part of the initiative, the school also prepared hampers for general usage in the children’s home. St Joseph’s High School has been carrying out such activities to a number of similar institutions over the past five years.
Martina Byrne, a teacher, related that it was a heartwarming experience to see the children so eager to receive their gifts.
“This was my first time partaking in this activity, and it was a great experience to see the children so happy,” said Byrne.
The school was able to purchase the gifts from donations made by students over the academic year.
