IPS helps tsunami victims

news: IPS helps tsunami victims

STUDENTS at the International Preparatory School (IPS) in Carcavelos raised 3,000 euros to help the hundreds of thousands left homeless in South East Asia.

The school organised a special non-teaching Friday and held a series of games designed and developed by the students to raise the money. There was face painting, a dressing up race, a lucky dip and lots more.

Microsoft Portugal loaned, for free, an X-Box eight-person games console and Dias Dinâmicos provided a bouncy castle. The help of the Parent Teacher Association also contributed to the day’s great success.

The highlight of the day was a visit by Harald Rothermel and Andreas Piper, the two performing clowns, who certainly put huge smiles on the young faces. It was an excellent educational day that raised much-needed money to help the victims of the tsunami disaster. BH
