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.Chartwell International School used the amount of 150 000,00 dinars which were collected on 5th November 2015 to purchase the equipment that they needed.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.
