* Drop-in session by Christine Fort-Hilcenko at the Cobham Free School, Surrey, UK to give a talk to the children about the actions of the Raymond Nicolet Trust in Serbia. All the children were very enthusiastic and supportive of our ambitious goals and keen to engage an exchange with the children of the Jovan Jovanovic Zmaj School, Pancevo, in Serbia. This correspondence exchange between the children has started before Christmas and is going strong
Today Christine collected the drawings created by a Year 6 class from the school that is taking part in the drawing competition organized by the Trust in England, France, Serbia and Greece.
Christine was impressed with the level of care and thought that the kids have put into these to describe their ideal school.
The Raymond Nicolet Trust is grateful to Mrs Gill Rolfe, Head of Junior at Cobham Free School, to allow this to happen and for the warm welcome she and the children reserved to Christine.
Last year, the Cobham Free School donated a large number of books for the schools in Serbia that the charity is supporting. The books will be shipped in the first quarter 2020.
Many thanks to all the staff and children of the school for their kindness and generosity.
A beautiful example of children breaking international barriers to show support to their equivalent European neighbours in need and starting building bridges to enable further cooperation in line with the Raymond Nicolet Trust’s objectives.
