George Street Middle School attending a special screening of Marvel’s Captain America

The fun will begin with students from the George Street Middle School attending a special screening of Marvel’s Captain America: The Winter Soldier.
 
The students and school are being honoured with this star treatment as a result of their extraordinary volunteer and fundraising efforts for CHAT To The Future. CHAT To The Future houses, educates, cares for and provides for 17 orphaned Ugandan children in Kampala. The school sponsored an eight-year -old boy at the orphanage, and raised funds throughout the year to pay for his schooling. To make sure their student had even more support, the school used Skype to interact with the young boy, along with the other orphans.
