Candor International School International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme (IBDP) students decided to organize a special celebration for the hardworking support staff at their school for Labour Day. The students felt that the school staff, including Mobility Team, Canteen Team, Logistic Team, Cafeteria Team, Housekeeping Team, and other support staff, often go unrecognized for their contributions to the school community. As part of their Creativity, Activity, and Service (CAS) project, the students planned a day of festivities to show their appreciation.
The IBDP students started planning the event two months in advance. They worked together to come up with ideas for sports activities and organised cultural events. They also, made “Thanks you” cards, gifts, and lunch that would make the day memorable for the staff. The students were divided into committees, with each group responsible for a different aspect of the celebration. One committee focused on decorations, another on refreshments, and another on entertainment.
On the day of the event, the school was abuzz with excitement. The students had decorated the school with colourful banners, streamers, and balloons, creating a festive atmosphere. The students had even arranged for beverages and snacks to be served during the sport events
The staff members were touched by the students’ efforts to show their appreciation. As part of the entertainment, the students had organized a talent show, featuring performances from both staff and students. There were singing and dancing, which brought a lot of smiles to everyone’s faces. The IBDP students also presented a heartfelt speech, expressing their gratitude for the staff’s hard work and dedication.
The Labour Day celebration organized by the IBDP students was a huge success. It was a wonderful opportunity for the students to show their appreciation for the staff, and for the staff to feel recognized and valued. The event was not only a great way to give back to the school support staff community, but it was also an enriching experience for the students, who learned about teamwork, leadership, and community service.
In conclusion, the Labour Day celebrations organized by the IBDP students were a perfect example of how students can use their creativity, activity, and service skills to give back to their school community. It was an inspiring event that left a lasting impression on everyone involved.
