On 27 December, several ICS staff members loaded a total of 213 2 X Christmas boxes into their cars and took them to the Zumikon Post Office. There, under the watchful eye of the Post Master, the boxes were transferred to postal carriers and shipped, free of charge, to their first destination in Bern. Approximately half of the shipment was dispatched to Armenia and Bosnia Herzegovina in Eastern Europe. The remainder are being distributed to different centres throughout Switzerland.
This is the 14th year in succession that the ICS team effort, which includes both teachers and students in Primary Round Square and is actively supported by the ICS Parents' Association, has prepared boxes for the 2 x Christmas collection.
Although contributions are voluntary, nearly 70% of ICS Primary students contributed a box and the thought and care shown in the selection of the donations received from ICS families is greatly appreciated by the recipients. Knowing that many people will receive useful items from our community also strengthens our students' dedication to bringing sustainable support and benefit to others.
