Hearts were set on fire with kind affections as staff and students received gifts from their dearest of friends. This is an annual tradition and everyone looks forward to it with much enthusiasm and keenness. This year’s Chocolate Friendship Day was refreshingly inspiring. The Game Changers (IB Class of 2018), under the leadership Yehowahi Sekan and Samantha Azu, as usual made the difference. Their zeal and tact made the difference, as they piously collected and collated orders from staff and students. With about 2,846 assorted Chocolates, 435 Rose Flowers, 143 Teddy Bears and 1,798 Lollipop toffees ordered, the team came up with efficient strategies for distributing the gifts to all recipients, and this was done in record time. The euphoria amongst students after receiving their gifts was gratifying, which justifies Bill Russell’s quote: “to love someone is nothing, to be loved by someone is something, but to be loved by the one you love is everything”
As stated in earlier bulletins, funds raised from the sale of chocolates will be donated to the Burns Centre of Tema General Hospital. A total amount of GHC 4,843 was raised. As compassionate caring individuals, the objective is to support patients who have suffered different degrees of burns at the Tema General Hospital.
