Last Friday KISC held a walkathon. It was a great community event with the whole school, students, staff and some parents walking to the new site. The students have been busy collecting sponsors since before Christmas to raise money for a covered sports field. This would provide them with a good quality astro covered pitch to play on all year round with shade from the sun and shelter from the heavy monsoon rains.
The aim was US$45,000. Many in the community didn’t think we could make it. After arriving at the new site it was announced that not only had they reached the target, but they had smashed it! They have collected pledges totaling over US$56,000! Now we just need to collect the money in!
Once at the new site we had music and balloons to welcome us, hot dogs, brownies and lemonade for lunch and tours of the new buildings. It is just 5 weeks until we open on the new site, so it was all very exciting as many of the students hadn’t seen it before now. There is still a lot of work to be done, but we are on target. If you would like to sponsor Sam and Mim it’s not too late, just get in touch and let us know!
