In March 2014, we began a collaborative initiative with NBB Home for Disabled Children in Isa Town. Physiotherapist, Abrar Hasan Ammor asked St Christopher’s for some help in brightening up the walls of her room. Year 10 students headed up to Isa Town to measure up the room, then they began designing. With the help of Ms McKay, Mr Pearce and Jibby, DT Technician, boards were cut to size and the painting began.
Last July, Mrs Ammor came to St Christopher’s to pick up the first two murals; now, one year later, all of our paintings have been delivered and can now been seen by the children of the home. We hope our paintings encourage the youngsters to keep working on their physiotherapyand to reach that goal of walking independently. Mrs Ammor is delighted with the work of our students and we hope to continue to help the children who attend this facility in future years.
