Children Raise Fund to Help Poor Children to Celebrate Children’s Day
To inculcate a spirit of sharing and to nurture a sense of solidarity, the children in Newman School Neotan celebrated Children’s Day as Holy Childhood Day with fund raising to help the poor children on 14 November 2015.
The children in Newman School Neotan wanted to celebrate Children’s Day this year with a difference. They together with their teachers organized a fancy fete with a variety of fun games. The children took active part in it and contributed generously to raise fund for the poor children. “I am so happy today that I got a chance to help a poor child with my little contribution”, said Cecilia Mossang of Class X, beaming with joy.
Fr. Felix Anthony, the Principal of the school, appreciated and thanked the students for their generous expression of solidarity with poor children. The children too expressed their joy at having got an opportunity to celebrate Children’s Day with the difference this year.
The teachers of Newman School put up a colourful cultural programme to entertain the children prior to the fancy fete.
The fund raised from this fete will be forwarded to Pontifical Society for Missionary Childhood that helps millions of poor children across the world.
