HAVERFORD TWP., Pa. (WPVI) -- Students at two local schools shared a special day together after spending the year corresponding as pen pals. The students first met face to face in the fall and then wrote each other letters over the course of the year. This was their second in-person visit. They have found they have a lot in common, like Haverford School's Chase and Timothy School's Zenia, who both love music. See the clip >
Students participated in a morning of service and an afternoon of field games as part of Middle School Philip Bishop Day. Sixth graders worked on seeding, planting, and clean-up at Haverford's gardens and at the nearby Project HOME, Sharpe Park, and Gompers School. Form I students weeded and cleaned garden beds at Skunk Hollow Community Gardens, while Form II students went to Haverford Reserve for trail clean-up and tree planting.
As the culminating event of second-graders' study of Africa, they complete a Walk for Water service project. After learning about the hardship that many children in rural areas endure to access clean drinking water, second grade boys walk three miles with two gallons of water.
