For several years now, the staff at Hillcrest have sponsored students in Kenya, Africa, through the Canadian Harambee Education Society. CHES was started by Canadians to help girls in Africa who have no opportunity to attend school. The cost to send one boarding student to school for a year is $600.
Many students choose to honour staff at Christmas with a small gift of appreciation. Instead of a personal gift, please consider a different way of showing how much you care by sending a card to your teacher with a small donation to Harambee.
Attached is a letter with more information about this special tradition.
