Refugee tent in the library

Refugee tent in the library

This week is ACTION week for grade 6 Exhibition students. Almost every year we have students choose reading and literacy as their passion. This year Rijk was concerned that the Syrian refugee children in Istanbul we missing out on the opportunity to learn to read. He took action. He created a refugee tent in the library and invited students to come and hear a presentation about illiteracy. Students could then read in the tent for a small donation. All money Rijk raised went to the Don Bosco refugee school here in Istanbul so they could purchase school supplies.
