Our character focus for the month of April is “Generosity”, so our Kindergarten 2 children were able to show their generous heart through their 2nd fieldtrip, on April 9, 2018. We went to the orphanage “ Yayasan Sayap Ibu” ( Jl. Barito II no 55, Kebayoran Baru ) to show them there are other children who are not as fortunate as them. They were able to spend their time with their new found friends from Yayasan Sayap Ibu. Our children were so excited and happy.
They enjoyed the visit very much. They were able to show their talent through performances. They sang the praise and worship song such as; Nothing„s Too Big, Deep, deep, deep, and Gift To You. They also danced a Thank You song. The children from the orphanage gave a performance to welcome the ISMILE students and teachers. Ibu Pipit and Ibu Lily from the “Yayasan Sayap Ibu” toured us around and explained to us about the orphanage and the children who live there. After touring, we had lunch together with the orphans and they also play a game with them. They were so happy that they can share their time, talent and joy with their new friends.
Through this fieldtrip, the children learned how to share with others and also make some new friends. They shared their old toys or clothes with the unfortunate children in the orphanage. They also learned how to be grateful, be-cause they have family who takes care of them and they are living in privileged life. We hope that we can share more with the orphans and unfortunate children in future.
