Dubai College has supported RAEY in numerous ways.
A small group of students from Year 10 and Year12 meets regularly to organise fundraising activities and other events to help the children and families at RAEY.
The academic Year 2011-2012 started with the purchase of 180 blankets which were the result of a fiercely contested dodgeball tournament. From then we moved to the feeding programme and raising funds by covering a large picture of a cow with RAEY Logos and a number of bake sales, as well as a donation from World Food Day. December saw the end of term non-uniform day raise enough money to pay for the 2012 RAEY Summer School .
Christmas brought with it the much enjoyed Christmas stocking initiative where students across the school (but mostly in Year 8) put together 50 Christmas stockings for the children of RAEY. This project was met with as much enthusiasm from those making the stockings as those who received them .
Lots of thought and care went into choosing gifts based around the individual children's profiles. The milk drive continued in the second term and we ended the term with a sponsored swim which will enable us to start the Dubai College Scholarship for two children for the next five years.
More events are in the planning stages as I write and the future looks exciting both for the DC RAEY Charity Committee as well as the children at RAEY.
