World Sight Day

October 9, 2016

On Friday, October 7th, IBSB celebrated World Sight Day. The children arrived in school wearing sunglasses of various shapes and colours to mark this significant day. During the afternoon, each class got a visit from Brambles the guide dog and his handler Steve. Mrs Camelia Platt from Light Into Europe told the children that there are 100,000 children and adults in Romania with eye problems. The children brought a 10 lei donation for Light Into Europe and were told that it will be used to train the guide dog and provide canes. The message each child has promised to take home and tell their parents is that a visually impaired person has the right to go anywhere with a guide dog.
