Over 200 kids participated in the ‘Back to School’ Fest!
The Green Team welcomed over 200 students of Hopkins village, parents and teachers to the first ever ‘Back to School’ Fest hosted by the Green Team members of Hamanasi Resort on Saturday August 24, 2013 at the Catholic Church compound.
Joining Mr. Walton Rodriquez and the rest of the Green Team for the opening ceremony was the principal of the Holy Family RC School, Mrs. Seferina Castillo, who kindly agreed to present the backpacks.
The Fest was abuzz with activities, excitement, competitive spirits of the young ones, free snacks and lively music provide by a member of the community.
The purpose of the fest was to donate backpacks filled with an assortment of school supplies and other educational tools to 30 economically disadvantage/less fortunate kids as well as involving other kids in the community to participate in the different fun activities. The Green Team members also took advantage of the event by getting the kids to make easy eco-friendly mosquito traps to be used in homes and creating awareness of recycle, reduce and reuse practices.
Each kid had a chance to win cool prizes of a variety of school supplies which helped students, teachers and parents get prepared for the new school year.
We gave thanks to all our members and contributors that make this event a success!
