BPS participates in record-breaking kindness challenge

Monday, 08 February 2016 19:22

Last year students at Bolivar Primary School participated in an event that earned them a spot in the Guinness Book of World Records. As a part of the 2015 Great Kindness Challenge, BPS was invited to help set a new Guinness World Record for The Largest Collage of Cut-out Handprints. Organizers received notification recently to confirm they did in fact break the world record.

Challenge coordinators collected 181,946 handprints from 594 schools, and on May 1, 2015 a team of energetic volunteers installed 104,108 handprints on the walls of the Dignity Health Glendale Memorial Hospital. More than 6,000 square feet of wall space was blanketed with love which brightened the spirits of both the hospital patients and their families - including handprints from BPS students.

"If you look at the pics, you'll see a truck full of boxes-ours is the big white paper box," BPS event coordinator and counselor Sandy Simpson said. "Kids REALLY liked seeing our box. Our students are very proud!"
