During the month of April and May our MYP students continued with their volunteering activities in the Sisters of Charity Hospital - Department of Pediatrics. Our students accompanied by the Visual Art teacher engaged themselves in the interior wall decoration and painting in order to create a nicer environment that is important in helping children retain their confidence during hospital admission.
