An event our community looks forward to every year

November 9, 2019By

Our Charity Bazaar would not be the same without our wonderful supporters and donors. The International School of Riga is on of our long standing partners, supporting the IWCR Charity Bazar 2019 in various ways.

Enjoy the festive atmosphere with Christmas carols presented by the children‘s choir, shop handicrafts at their table or bid on gift vouchers for ISR’s Summer camp at our Silent Auction. ISR generously donates two vouchers – one for the Primary Program and one for Secondary Program (each worth 350 EUR). The Secondary Summer Camp, was introduced for the first time last year.

Camp sessions included arts and crafts, games, sports, storytelling, cooking, science experiments and outdoor activities. Non or limited English speaking students are working on improving their English throughout the weeks.

IWCR: Why do you give to our organization? What motivates you to stay involved?

Cyrielle Bazin, ISR: Why we give to organizations like the IWCR is embedded in our mission statement: “We are a respectful, learning-focused community where each student is inspired to achieve his or her potential, and to become an ethical, confident and internationally-minded citizen of tomorrow”.

It is at the heart of everything we do and what we teach our students. ISR has a long standing tradition of being involved in the Bazaar and it is an event our community looks forward to every year.

IWCR: What are your donations to, or activities at, the bazaar?

Cyrielle Bazin, ISR: This year, we are proud to be involved in 3 different activities: for the silent auction, we are donating 2 Summer Camp vouchers (valued at 350 EUR each): one for our Primary camp and one for our Secondary Camp.

Our school choir will also perform Christmas carols for the visitors.

Finally, our Grade 5 students will be hosting a table: as part of their final project (the PYP Exhibition), they have to create and sell products. They will sell their creations at the Bazaar and give all the proceeds to the IWCR.

IWCR: What would you like to pass on to future generations?

Cyrielle Bazin, ISR: As a school, we hope that we provide our students with all the tools to become caring and ethical adults. By providing a safe and encouraging learning environment, we encourage students to become the best version of themselves they can be.

IWCR: Do you have an anecdote about the bazaar/organization that really moved you?

Cyrielle Bazin, ISR: Last year, our Grade 5 participated in the Bazaar by hosting a table. They came back so humbled and proud to have been part of something bigger than them, it was heartwarming.

IWCR: Do you have a message to share?

Cyrielle Bazin, ISR: We would like to thank the IWCR for the continuous work that you do, and here’s to many more years of collaboration between ISR and the IWCR
