The Shoebox Appeal
Mr Keer – a Maths Teacher from Oaklands Catholic School organised for our School to take part in the Operation Christmas Child. Every year, hundreds of children living in poverty don’t receive any presents for Christmas, so the Shoebox appeal sends shoeboxes wrapped with Christmas wrapping paper full of presents of every-day items such as toothbrushes and face-flannels, stationary and toys/games, sweets and clothes etc. Each week, in T10, students came to the Shoebox Appeal club and wrapped shoeboxes or organised presents into different shoeboxes, each aimed at a specific age or gender. Overall, we had 83 shoeboxes to donate to children who aren’t as lucky as us. Hopefully next year we will be able to put a smile on even more children’s faces! Thank you very much to everyone who donated gifts, shoeboxes or wrapping paper, or helped out in the club!

IISS “L.RUSSO” MONOPOLI Student’s Volleyball Tournament
In the month of January 2018 the classes of the Luigi Russo Artistic Lyceum of Monopoli have taken part in a volleyball tournament. The matches have been played on three 25-point sets. The teams have shown enthusiasm during the matches, above all because the students felt a kind of healthy competition among them. Moreover in our country and area Volleyball is one of the most appreciated sports and is practiced by many students even in extra-curricular time in our school in student championships or in the sporting volleyball clubs. The winners will be awarded on Sports Day that is usually celebrated in our school in the month of May.
The Portuguese partner Eudaimonia Team carried out a solidarity campaign to raise food items in order to organize as much food baskets as possible to offer to some of our students’ families in financial need. The campaign started on the 10th November our school’s anniversary day. The audience of the formal ceremony of the best students’ awards was invited to bring some food items to compose the baskets.
Afterwards, the campaign continued at school until the 11th December.
The items collected were enough to prepare 7 school baskets that were delivered to 7 students, making their Christmas a bit happier and rich.
