I like my school because they have a dress code and I love my school dress. The green colour gives me a lot of positive vibes. The library of our school is very big and we also have sports accessories. I like this school because it is an English medium school for learning and exploring oneself. The teachers of our school are very dedicated and passionate which eventually increases the interest of all the children who are studying. Our school is in a very peaceful place. We also have cultural events on regular basis in our school.
Dear Sarita,

When I read you story, I thought of my life as I was growing-up in Greece. My father died when I was eight-years-old. I got used to wearing second hand clothes. Our neighbors brought us food, until my mother got a job. I walked to the public school. Some relatives gave us money for books. During the summer, I worked in a farm every day in the week.

I completed advanced education (I am a PhD Chemist) and I have built a very successful career by working hard, always respecting people and doing the best I could.

I decided to start a fundraiser to support your 2017 school cost. I was thrilled that we were able to collect the needed donations in less than two days!

From the bottom of my heart, I wish you and your family good health and happiness. And, all the best at school!

Life may not always be easy, but you can achieve anything you dream. Do not let anything or anyone ever stop you.

Warm wishes,
Maria
