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
