Renaissance Charity Art Auction

Renaissance Charity Art Auction 1 Renaissance proudly hosted this year’s Students’ Charity Art Auction. It is the second time the school has held this event, with all money raised going to GoVap Orphanage. Primary and secondary student artists kindly donated their time and all of the artwork to guarantee the auction was a great success. Our wonderfully enthusiastic and caring students acted as auctioneers, attendants, porters and entertainers to ensure this was a very special night.

There was something for everyone – with a vast variety of themes, art styles and compositions from Modern art to Impressionism, collage to paintings and sculptures. The quality and creativity of the work would be difficult to match even in many professional galleries.

An eager public packed the auction room and bidding was fun and friendly…but competitive…with hundreds of dollars being bid for each item. The silent auction part of the evening was just as exciting with the top price continually changing as each new person made an offer.

With over 100.000.000 VND raised, the kindness and generosity of our school community ensured that this was an evening to remember for all concerned.   “

Renaissance Charity Art Auction 2

As well as the Art Auction, our school commits to other supporting projects with GoVap Orphanage. A group of twenty IB students visit the orphanage every week to teach, sing, dance and play games with the children who live there. It is aptly called ‘The Buddy Scheme’ as each of our students are ‘buddied’ or paired with a child from the orphanage who they develop a close and supportive relationship with. It is heart-warming to watch these relationships develop as both the students and the orphans develop life skills and benefit in so many ways from these interactions.

Once this bond was created, the students wanted to do more to help their new friends and so we set up ‘Play Days’ for our students and the children at the orphanage. Our students organise different games and activities at our school on Saturdays throughout the year, including swimming, sports and art for the children of all ages from 2-18 years old. We have now had two and look forward to enjoying this again next term.

Our collaboration with GoVap Orphanage has proved to be such a valuable experience for both the orphanage and our school as we dedicate our hearts and minds to learning about each other’s lives.
