Texas IB Schools commemorate Roshan Thomas Day for Children

Student-led Event Honored Humanitarian and Founder of Afghani Academy

Alcuin School, a leader in Montessori and International Baccalaureate education, hosted Samira Thomas, daughter of educator and humanitarian Roshan Thomas, for the first-ever Roshan Thomas Day for Children of Texas IB Schools and member organizations on Jan. 30.

Roshan Thomas Day for Children celebrated Thomas’ commitment to education, her role in developing medical clinics in refugee camps, and recognized her leadership and advocacy on behalf of underserved children around the world.  Ms. Thomas was slain in Afghanistan in March 2014.

Alcuin students led an in-school fundraiser by selling wristbands that featured the characteristics of IB learners to generate proceeds to benefit the Roshan Thomas Sparks Scholars Program.
