Twelve fifth form students of Achievers’ Academy of Soesdyke, East Bank Demerara, brought early Christmas cheer to patients of the Paediatrics Ward of the Georgetown Public Hospital, on Friday.
In the company of about three senior teachers and the owner of the private learning institution, Miss Carol Ann Munroe, the students donated teddy bears, toys, entertaining games, quilts they made along with story books that focused on the birth of Jesus Christ and the history of Christmas.
One student read one of the books to a young boy while another fifth former gave a teddy bear to another child in the paediatric ward.
Munroe said that the school has always been involved in charitable activities but this is the first time that it has taken the joys of this festive season to the hospital.
One student, Ronaldo Fernandes, said that he feels happy to know that he can bring delight to the children of the Paediatrics Ward.
“Our teacher always tells us that it is important to learn to care about others and not just ourselves. I feel very happy to just be here and let these children know that people out there still care about them. I don’t know what some of them are in here for but I want them to feel the Christmas spirit no matter what they are facing,” he remarked.
Mrs Munroe asserted that she is pleased with the efforts of her students who were very eager to participate in the event. She assured that it would not be the school’s last visit to the patients of the GPHC.
