The Sunshine Kindergarten (TSK) went pink last week to raise money for a special charity, The Al-Sidra Association, in Kuwait. The Al-Sidra association is a psychological support centre for women and their families who are living with cancer.
For this cause, the children in TSK came to school dressed in pink and/or white. They also made hundreds of cakes, cookies, chocolate balls, rice krispie cakes and fruit skewers to sell to their parents.
Ingredients for the bake sale were supplied by Saveco, who gave TSK a discount as it was a charity event.
On this special day, Sixth Form Students from The British School of Kuwait (BSK) visited TSK and hosted a variety of fun activities, which included face painting, nail painting, hair braiding, stick-on tattoos, bracelet beading, popcorn making and a photo shoot opportunity where the children got to take home their own personal photo from the TSK photo booth.
Parents were also able to purchase hair bands, bracelets, neck ties and pink ribbons decorated by their children.
TSK children were not only able to enhance their skills whilst making these items, but were able to recognize the good work they could achieve by selling their products and raising money to help other people.
Overall, not only did TSK raise nearly KD900 for charity, but had proven to be a fun event for everyone.
TSK Principal, Heather Holsgrove was thrilled with the participation of the children, the TSK teaching team and parents who took time out of their busy schedules to come and support TSK and Al-Sidra on this day.
