Trinity School students inspire Ebola donation

 

Moved by a Trinity School students project on Ebola awareness, a local family has anonymously donated 20 Ebola worker protection kits and $30,000 worth of medical supplies through MAP International.

Guided by service learning coordinator Kim Thacker, fourth-grade students at Trinity School in Menlo Park researched the cause and symptoms of Ebola, and learned about treatment centers built to contain the disease and the dedication of medical personnel helping care for Ebola patients. The students mailed cards to the workers to thank them for their commitment.

The students learned about impoverished areas, where people seek widely for food, and tried to understand why some people are afraid to get treatment.

The fourth-graders received a letter from the Consulate General of the Republic of Liberia acknowledging the students' work in bringing awareness of the Ebola crisis that faces Liberia.

The Trinity project on Ebola is part of the school's service learning program to help students identify and research local and global issues. The fourth-grade students chose to study the Ebola crisis, sparked by their commitment to confronting problems that hurt children, say school officials.

Trinity is a private elementary school in the Episcopal tradition located at 2650 Sand Hill Road in the Sharon Heights subdivision in Menlo Park.
