Fund Raising for the Philippines
Following a concerted effort by students, staff and parents, Mougins School has already raised 3,012€ for those people whose lives have been tragically affected by the recent disaster. A School Bake Sale organised by students, with the assistance of the Parent Teacher Organisation raised 1,862€, and generous donations from families at the School raised 1,150€. After careful selection, the School has chosen to donate this money to the local Philippine Association of the Riviera (VISAYAS).
On his return from the Philippines the President of the VISAYAS Association brought in a film telling the story of the distribution of food bought with the money raised by Mougins School. The film told a very touching story and the students were delighted to see exactly how the money had been used. The Association had subsequently been offered a container and transport to take food, clothes and school items to the Philippines, so Mougins School went into action once more and a collection was initiated. The response was heart-warming and a large delivery of the required goods was subsequently made to the Association.
