2015 was an exciting year for Myschoolpulse especially as we opened a school in the Makassed General Hospital, our sixth!
We are happy to introduce our new teachers at Makassed, Mrs Nawal Nader and Mrs Manal Abi Abdallah.

In March 2015, Art therapy was introduced in a second hospital, Saint George Hospital UMC with Art Therapist, Ms Myra Saad.
Art therapy helps children tame the anxieties and fears related to their illness and improve their well-being.

In November 2015, Myschoolpulse launched its 2nd edition of "Pulses of Happiness", an annual exhibition displaying art produced by children under treatment at the Notre Dame de Secours hospital, Byblos. The event was organised by our Art Therapist Ms Soraya Obeid, with the kind participation of the prominent theatre celebrity M. Georges Khabbaz. Watch the Future TV report here.

Christmas is a cherished period of the year for Myschoolpulse and all its pupils. Personalised gifts are distributed to children and their room mates in all six hospitals and nurses receive their gifts too! It is a good occasion to share, smile, rejoice and hope.
