A fortnight ago, Chartwell Secondary Students gave initiative to the organizing of a Christmas Charity Bazaar. And they did it!!! They organized it on 13th December in the afternoon – they sold cookies, cakes, Christmas cards, ornaments and bookmarks – all that they had made by themselves, they sold second hand books, toys… they face painted.. they organized photos with Santa, they played, they sang, the choir entertained the audience for a good half an hour with Christmas Carols – all in all it was well organized and successful event! It would not have however been so if it was not for you - all those that attended the bazaar - so a big thank you from the students to all who came and helped them achieve what they did! With your help they managed to enable the children of Zvecanska to have a merrier Christmas and New Year!
Chartwell Secondary School teachers would like to use this opportunity to say how proud they are of theirs students! You are great!
On 9th October, Chartwell school took part in a humanitarian lunch organized by their Royal Highnesses Crown Prince Alexander and Crown Princess Katherine.
The event took place at the White Palace with the aim to help children hospitals in Serbia. Still, needs for hospitals and their facilities in Serbia are great, especially when facing a vulnerable group such as children in need.
Our School has been very active in helping various projects over the years and continues to pursue an idea of aiding all humanitarian projects which support children in need.
Amongst other schools, banks and individuals, Chartwell has been recognised for great support and generosity.
As we have already informed you, every year Chartwell International School is involved in charity work and this year charity is directed towards Zvecanska –the largest Children's Home in Belgrade looking after under privileged children, orphans, Roma children, and children with special needs – specifically to the section working with young people from the age of 15 to 26.
Secondary school students undertook this task seriously- they visited Zvecanska, talked to the management and the teachers there, held meetings after school, organized collecting of second hand clothes, shoes…They are planning to, after the Christmas break, go to Zvecanska again, and to decorate their halls by painting them. There are other plans as well, but these will be revealed at a later date.
As far as the proceedings gathered at Bonfire night are concerned, we have talked to the management of the center and at the moment they were looking for a way to equip their so called “Creative workshop” - they needed paints – temperas, acrylic paints, construction paper, colored pencils, picture frames, rulers, decoupage napkins, boxes, glitter, etc.
On 16th December 2015 our Secondary School students took these to the center.We are hereby thanking you on the behalf of the children and the staff of the Center whose smiles, when we brought in the purchased materials, we wish you could have been there to see. If it had not been for you and your donations we could not have done it!!
Our work continues, so if you have any second hand clothes, toys...anything that you would like to donate please contact the school.
Hope to see you tonight at Christmas Carols – buy a raffle ticket, win a prize and at the same time donate to charity!
Thank you once more on behalf of Zvecanska and on our behalf.
On Thursday 5th November we celebrated the British tradition of bonfire night. This annual event has been a part of British culture since 1605.
Chartwell has made this into its very own tradition and every year uses this as an opportunity to raise money for charity. This year we raised 230 000 RSD for the city orphanage – Zvecanska and would like to thank everyone who came and gave both their time and their money. We thoroughly enjoyed celebrating with you all and are very proud to partner with you in doing something so charitable and good for our society.
