On January 18th students from Grade 4S visited the Paul Parquet Children's Home to entertain children there. Our students prepared a selection of French, English and Japanese songs to perform, with piano accompaniment by class members.
It was a lovely concert, and our students were a delight that charmed the little ones! After the music our students gently played and talked with the children.
The Paul Parquet Foundation, located in Neuilly, takes care of children whose parents are unable to care for them, or who need constant medical surveillance (children up to the age of 6). This service project involving visits to the home to work and play with the children was a component of the Make a Difference club led by Mrs. Stadlman. It has now become part of the class's Footsteps project, aiming to promote empathy and compassion. The class visits the home twice each semester.
During the first visit in November, the students prepared a craft activity and worked with the children making fall scenes to decorate their playroom with autumnal trees, leaves and fruits. They guided the children cutting, gluing and pasting!
For both these visits the students brought treats, some donated by our parents, to share with the children.
