ASIA Metropolitan International School (AMETIS) places immense emphasis on developing learners who excel academically and are competent socially as global citizens via its outreach programmes.
The AMETIS team, consisting of 16 learners, four staff members and a parent volunteer, carried out their programme in Don Bosco Sneha Bhavan from Tuesday, July 5 to Sunday, July 10. Don Bosco Sneha Bhavan is a registered charity based in the state of Kerala, India. Through its five centres and various community-based projects, the organisation primarily operates to help children at risk: street children and youth, child labourers, child beggars, lost children, children in conflict with the law, abused children, abandoned children, runaways and children from dysfunctional family environments.
The team spent two days at one of the centres for boys aged between 11 and 14 in Cochin. They conducted various activities such as language games, sing-along sessions, painting and colouring.
Thanks to generous donations from parents and friends of AMETIS, the team was able to bring along gift bags for the children brimming with stationery and foodstuff. Plus, a cash donation of INR 80,000 was made to the organisation.
For the learners from AMETIS, it was an invaluable experience.
AMETIS offers the Cambridge International Primary and Secondary programmes of study, leading up to the IGCSE. Enrolment is open for September intake. For more info, please call 05 241 3141 or visit its website at www.ametis.edu.my.
