Under this, four boxes were put up in the Middle School Foyer, to collect clothes, stationary, toys and books, that we all have but don’t use any longer.
They got huge contributions from all the Columban students, teachers and other staff members. Each contribution showed how the students have imbibed the values of our founder, Edmund Rice.
