Learning in the MYP

Toiletry Run

Dear Students, Teachers and Parents of TIS,

My name is Oscar Landgren and I am a student in Grade 7B at TIS. As you may know, I have had a Toiletry Run for a very long time and is pleased to announced that the “run” went really well. Thank you to those who contributed with toiletries, they all went to a good cause, to people who have risked their lives coming to new places from war or other disasters.

My grandmother has delivered these toiletries to a place which is called “Flyktingboende” in Swedish, which in English means Refugee Housing or Homes for Refugees. These refugees and administrators where very pleased and happy. Thank you again to those who participated.

Furthermore, I will go back to Sweden this summer and will meet with them. I will have a talk to them and give more toiletries. Talking to them I hope to learn more about their experiences and maybe next semester (when I am in Grade 8) I could let you know what I learned from them. I really want to say thank you again but before I end this I want to share some images of the visit my grandmother did at the “Flyktingboende”:
