Kids Helping Kids: Students Unite to Collect Food

Gazing out from the stage in the school’s Assembly Room, fifteen second grade students stood and collectively asked the assembled audience some objective questions: “What if you only had one meal a day, could you be happy? Could you concentrate in school? Probably not,” they answered. “Your stomach would ache, your head would hurt and your heart would be broken.”

Spirit of South African People Inspires Local Students

“I left part of my heart in South Africa,” commented Mount Madonna School (MMS) senior Quincy Mitchell. “And in return it has given me a piece of its soul that I shall carry with me forever.”

Mitchell’s comment came during the September 23 Sawubona Project presentation at MMS. ‘Sawubona’, Zulu for ‘I See You’, is the name of a year-long project which culminated in a June journey to South Africa for MMS’ senior class. The project was developed as part of the “Values in World Thought” social studies course, a two-year curriculum for MMS 11th and 12th graders.
