It was scheduled for three days, our students 185 of them from classes 3-8 participated in it. The Director of the camp Mr. Cha Jiwan and his team of 16 members of IYF, offered an exciting combination of International development programme for our children.
The International Youth Fellowship is a worldwide youth organization formed in South Korea by prominent people from different fields and levels in order to develop mindsets for the upcoming generation. Mr. Cha Jiwan through his lecture, and video clips focused on providing the growing kids strong minds, capable of overcoming whatever hardship they face in life and become the leaders of the next generation. The dances and other interactive sessions enabled our children for a global cultural exchange with each other in particular with their friends. Another creative and fun filled enjoyment for them was the activities conducted for different classes by the team. The activities they participated were mini Olympics, folk dance, taekwondo class, (karate) Korean cultural dances and language and painting. The participants grabbed every opportunity to explore new learning, and enjoyed self- expression. Through these activities the IYF team guided the participants to acquire a healthy mind and a benign heart.
