As part of the CAS programme, twenty two Year 12 and Year 13 students organised Santa’s Grotto for the 2018 Radisson Christmas Bazaar.
The students spent several months collaborating to organise and prepare a unique experience that attracted a large number of parents and children, resulting in funds being raised for local charities in and around Astana.
Aidar Kadyr in Year 13 and Khaknazar Mukash in Year 12 took turns dressing up as Father Christmas, giving children the opportunity to share their Christmas wishes and receive a small gift.
Yasmin Issabek and Aiym Aibatyr in Year 12 did a fantastic job creating a festive fireplace and stools to set the scene of a magical Christmas grotto. There were many other students that worked behind the scenes preparing gifts before the event.
There were also students that collaborated on the day to promote the event and serve refreshments.
