Donate books – Spread knowledge

Donate books – Spread knowledge

Hello Parents

We Stuti, Anushka, Abhishek and Chahna, the students of Grade-6 are planning to take action for our PYP Exhibition topic ‘Quality Education’.

After doing comprehensive research, conducting multiple interviews and going for field trips, we have found out that there is a need for storybooks in a school named ‘Disha footpath’.

We are planning to donate storybooks to Disha footpath school. We request you to send some short English storybooks with your child tomorrow to school. Remember that your one book can bring a smile to many children.  Your cooperation and donation will definitely make a difference!

Go ahead and spread knowledge…

Regards

Grade 6 PYPx Students
