Every year LIS celebrates autumn by having a Harvest Festival. During this celebration, we invite people from Diakonicentralen in Lund (an organization that helps homeless and poor people in Lund – including refugees) to visit our school and receive food donations. We ask if each child could decorate a shoebox at home (Simple paper decoration e.g. autumn leaves, recycled paper etc) and then fill it with non-perishable food. The boxes of food will be brought back to school and the class teachers will organize them on the reception desk (entrance area) which we ask you to keep clear during that day.
This event is a great opportunity for us, together with our children, to reflect on how fortunate we are by having a place to live and food on our tables as well as being able to help people in need.
