WISStival is our annual winter bazaar. This year’s event will take place in the gym, cafeteria, Secondary entrance and front fields. The gymnasium will be transformed into a festive Winter Market with performances and draws for our Grand Raffle scheduled throughout the day. Food vendors will line the walkway to the Secondary building (weather permitting). The North Pole, where Santa will be available to take family photos, will be located in the Secondary school entrance. Children can participate in craft activities located in the cafeteria and play on the new WISS bouncy slide, playground equipment and front sports field. The PCV will also sponsor a bake sale – details to follow. We are also sponsoring a WISStival holiday mug design contest.
One hundred percent of our proceeds benefit Couleurs de Chine (http://www.couleursdechine.org/) – a charity organization that supports the education of minority children in rural China. Last year’s funds were able to support education for 5 girls for 3 additional years of schooling. We are very excited to continue our partnership with CDC this year to help support this wonderful mission. As a community, we believe in inspiring generosity and goodwill and WISStival is just one example of how WISS demonstrates this “compassionate spirit”, one of core values.
