Doing Good and Giving Back to the Community

How do you teach children compassion and empathy? CHW Netanya Technological High School has taken the right approach! For the past six years, the students from CHW Netanya have undertaken a community service project. The project involves the students reaching out to a local Retirement Home to engage with the senior citizens that live there.
This week, the school opened its doors to the senior citizens. They were welcomed to take part in specially planned activities to create a day of fun, learning, and getting to know one another.

There were some senior citizens who were not well enough to come to CHW Netanya for the day, so students packed up goody-bags, and hand delivered them to the Retirement Home!

This is an excellent opportunity for the community and students to connect with one another and create strong relationships, all while teaching the children the importance of caring for others and giving back to the community.
The Principal, Benny, along with fellow teachers at the school have dedicated their lives to instilling within these children the importance of volunteering and helping others. This has become an annual tradition that the students, senior citizens, and faculty have come to cherish!
