The Seniors of the Stella K. Abraham High School for Girls took a trip on Wednesday, March 1, to Be’er Hagolah Institute to share the joy of Adar with the children of the school. Enjoying an entertaining carnival and various art projects, the students at Be’er Hagolah were b’simchah throughout the SKA’s students’ entire visit.
The SKA 12th Graders were assigned to classrooms to do an art project with the children or to run one of the many booths – face painting, pickle races, cotton candy, popcorn, and more – set up at the carnival. There was lots of music and dancing, too! The children excitedly went to each booth and left with prizes in their hands and smiles on their faces.
In the classrooms, the Seniors did Purim-related art projects such as creating Esther and Mordechai masks and colored clowns. The Be’er Hagolah students got right to work cutting and coloring, and they were so happy with their beautiful results.
The SKA Seniors felt fortunate to be able to perform this chesed and spread Purim spirit in the school; it was so rewarding to see the joy they imparted and the difference they made in the lives of others.
