No longer in the dark on plight of Nepalese
METHODIST Ladies’ College Junior School students had the chance to experience a school day without electricity on Tuesday, May 26.
The Year 6 girls on the Student Representative Council organised Lights Out for Nepal day after watching the news stories about the devastation of the Nepal earthquakes.
The event helped the girls understand the living conditions for children in Nepal.
All lights, computers and electrical appliances were turned off for the day and girls were asked to bring in a gold coin donation that will go to aid agencies working in the Nepal area.
Only iPads, lights in the toilets and essential emergency services such as telephones were kept working.
