Cathedral Academy kids arrive with get well cards and gifts

For a few minutes on Friday morning, it felt like a normal hospital where visitors bring cards and flowers to make ailing loved ones feel better. But this time, the cards and gifts were for the sick and injured sea turtles at the South Carolina Aquarium Sea Turtle Rescue Program.

Cathedral Academy students, parents and teachers, visited the Sea Turtle Hospital armed with beautiful, homemade, get well cards and much needed hospital supplies such as trash bags, sponges and dish soap.
It was obvious that a great deal of time, effort and love went into each and every card. The covers were sparkling and creative, and inside contained personal messages and poems to the patients. Each child was thrilled to meet the turtle whose card he or she had worked so hard to create. It was a wonderful tour with kids very excited about helping sea turtles.

Thank you, Cathedral Academy!
