ICS: A Truly Kind and Caring Community

The International Community School (Singapore) is celebrating 25 years of community with Acts of Kindness. This school-wide project runs from September 16, 2017 to April 13, 2018. Students, teachers, staff and parents are encouraged to perform 25 acts of kindness per person.

For the past 25 years, God has been faithful in providing ICS' needs. We want to share our blessings in multifold with our community and teach our students to do the same. Here is a testimonial of our student's family who was blessed by the ICS caring community during this project.

"My name is Hena, and I am the mother of Aryan, who is in Grade 3. Very recently, I was required to be in India to take care of a family emergency. I was in despair because that would have meant my small children would be left unattended when my husband went to work. I nearly cancelled my trip, until Tracy, a mom at ICS offered to look after my kids after school.

Over the next 2 weeks, Tracy and her two lovely daughters - Sydney and Saylor ensured that my kids were well taken care for until their father returned home from the office. Many other families (of whom I've only met once!) offered to help us arrange for my kid's food in school as well as at home.

Other helpful ICS family - Anju and her husband also dropped by my house personally a few times with loads of food. Aryan even stayed with them overnight. I also received very significant help from our ICS receptionist, Shally and another amazing ICS mom, Elizabeth for coordinating and managing things in my absence.

I would like to express my gratitude to everyone who has helped us in time of need and also to those who have offered to help. The response was immediate and overwhelming - truly demonstrates the Spirit of the ICS Community!"
